To give you some inspiration, my dad is an accomplished cook and grill master, but his "best recipe" is Potatoes Anna. He makes an incredible version in a very well-seasoned cast-iron skillet. Requesting this treat is not something to be done too lightly, as this dish requires the peeling and thin slicing of a large quantity of potatoes. Then comes the layering, buttering, seasoning and cooking until the outside is browned and crisp and the inside is tender and melting. For the final touch, he inverts the whole potato cake onto a plate. It's a beautiful sight to behold!So, what's your Dad's best recipe?
