Use a casserole which is good for the stove as well
as the oven. Put one layer of potatoes on the bottom, brush well with
butter, sprinkle salt and pepper on top, add the next layer, brush with
butter, etc. until all the potato slices have finished. Put on high
heat until the bottom layer is brow. Press the potatoes firmly together
and turn the potato cake around. Put again on a high heat until this
side is brown. Now bake in the oven for 40 minutes at 200 degrees
Deslions was, according to the stories, a prostitute in the 19th century
who never got paid for her services. She lived from the generous gifts
of her clients, and was therefore not a prostitute in the true sense
of the word. She worked from Cafe des Anglais, a place frequented by
high-ranked men, where the owner had a dining room especially for her.
One of the chefs created a special dish for her, the "Anna potatoes".
