Looking for a simple yet elegant-looking dish without breaking a bank? Potato Pavé is your answer! A uniform golden brown exterior with creamy layered soft potato will wow your guest! Pavé in French mean cobblestone, which is layered square or rectangular shape similar to cobblestone.          


  • 1 Cup of Heavy Cream
  • 3 Russet Potatoes
  • 4 Tablespoons of Unsalted Butter
  • 1 tsp of Salt 
  • 1 tsp of black Pepper 
  • Oil 
  • Fresh Chives (Garnish)


1. Preheat oven at 350F degree 

2. In a large mixing bowl, combine heavy cream, salt, and black pepper. Remove potato skin. Trim all sides of the potato to form a rectangular shape. Place the potato on the mandoline and slice into thin slices. ( Slicing with the knife can an alternative if mandoline is not available) Toss the sliced potato into cream mixture to prevent oxidation. Cut butter into small cube for later use. 

3. Place aluminum foil in a rectangular baking pan. Spray oil on all sides of the foil to prevent sticking. Place first and second layers of sliced potato on the bottom of the pan. Add 2 butter cubes on the layered intersection. Continue the same step with the remaining butters and potato. 

4. After finishing the layered potato, fold in the foil to cover it. Place in oven and bake for 2 hours, or until knife can penetrate the softened potato. Remove pan from the oven and aluminum cans (like can tuna) to weight down on top of the foil for 15 min.

5. To serve, remove the foil and transport potato onto cutting board. Trim 4 edges to have a smooth, straight cross-section. Cut the Pavé into 8 pieces (2 by 4)

6. On the skillet, add a dash of cooking oil over medium heat. Once the oil gets hot, add the Pavé, sear each side until golden-brown (usually around 3 min each side). Transfer Pavé onto plate and dash some fresh chive to serve.
