Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    Gratins are distinguished by their oven-browned topping of buttery bread crumbs or cheese. They are assembled in shallow baking dishes that have a large surface area to make the most crispy-golden crust.
  • tip 2
    Because parsnips are often covered with a wax coating, do not put the peelings down the garbage disposal.
