“I don't know how old this recipe is or where it originates from, but I remember it was one of the first recipes my Father taught me, and I've passed it on to my children,,,the only difference is they haven't cottoned on to the fact that when someone gives you a recipe you are supposed to try and make the dish yourself... The potatoes should be sliced as thinly as possible, ideally using a mandolin, and it can be completely vegetarian by using vegetable stock instead of chicken stock.”
