St Gall is one of the best Irish cheeses to cook with, but it will also sit happily alongside a few other varieties on a cheese board

Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Use a Japanese mandolin or sharp knife to slice the parsnips and potatoes very thinly. Layer the parsnips and potatoes in a shallow gratin dish, sprinkling some cheese and onion and a little drizzle of the cream over each layer, seasoning with salt and pepper as you go. The top layer should be potatoes and parsnips with a final sprinkling of cheese and drizzling of cream.

  2. Cover with foil and bake in the oven for 2 hrs, alongside the pork. Remove the foil and continue to bake for 20 mins until golden. For a really golden brown top, finish under a hot grill if you like.

do you leave the core of parsnips in so they are roundly sliced? or do you still take the core out?

This is a wonderful dish and goes so well with the daube of pork and roast shoulder of lamb.

I substituted the St. Gall cheese for Gouda, used oat cream and topped the gratin liberally with fresh parsley. What a delight! I will definitely make this again.

I make this all the time as my default dauphinoise - much creamier than normal and properly delicious with the daube of pork as recommended.

Cheesy and good, though I may use less onion next time to let the other flavours come out more.
