Poulpe Gratinée

3 cookbooks

Both the octopus stew and the horseradish-mashed potatoes are delicious enough to serve as a meal by themself, the stew served with a good sour-dough bread, and the potatoes served with a nice leafy-greens salad. However, combined in this wonderful hit of a dish, it makes for a super delicious, beautiful, yet simple to prepare meal.
