    • 40 g

    • 1/2 g
      thyme, finely chopped (For the potato mash)
    • Salt, freshly ground black pepper and nutmeg, to taste (For the potato mash)
    • 40 g
      butter (For the choux pastry)
    • 120 ml
      water (For the choux pastry)
    • 60 g
      flour (For the choux pastry)
    • 2
      whole eggs, beaten (For the choux pastry)
    • Salt (For the choux pastry)
    • Sunflower oil for deep-frying (For the choux pastry)
    • Maldon sea salt flakes (For the choux pastry)

    Instructions

    • 1Pre-heat oven to 180°C. Prick the potatoes with a fork, place them over rack/tray, and bake for 55 minutes or until very soft.
    • 2When potatoes are cooked, cut them in half and push the flesh out of their skins and pass through a fine drum sieve. If you don’t have a drum sieve, you can use a potato ricer but ensure that there are no lumps in the potato mash. Add 40g butter and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Mix well and check seasoning. Add whole egg and mix well.
    • 3No make the choux pastry. Start by putting the water, butter and salt in a pan, let it come to a boil and until all butter is dissolved. Take off the heat, add the flour all at once and using a spatula, mix the dough vigorously until it comes off the sides of the pan. Transfer to a bowl, spreading the dough over the sides of the bowl to help cool down, and when cool, start adding the beaten eggs a little at a time until smooth and completely combined. The choux pastry should be smooth with no lumps.
    • 4In a separate bowl, mix the seasoned potatoes with the choux pastry and add the finely chopped thyme, mix well. Using a couple of spoons, dipping them in oil, make quenelles placing them over a tray lined with baking sheet, refrigerate until needed.
    • 5Turn deep fat fryer to 160-170°C. Deep-fry the Pommes Dauphine quenelles, sliding them in carefully. They are cooked when a nicely brown colour is achieved, about 4 minutes, turn them over. Drain on paper and serve immediately with a sprinkle of sea salt flakes.

    These delectable dumplings are well worth the effort. Crispy, pillowy and moorish, they are the perfect accompaniment to a very special meal. They go perfectly with the London Foodie’s Roasted Monkfish with Saffron and Mussel Ragoût. This delicious dish was served at our Martell Supper Club, hosted by the London Foodie at his London home to celebrate our 300th anniversary.
