The quintessential French gratin is one of my all time favorite dishes to make and eat. I've made many a gratin in my day, but I know that my gratins will not be as delicious as they could be if I had a mandoline. Pronounced mahn-duh-lee, a mandoline is a compact, hand operated machine similar to a cheese grater. Instead of grating, the blades can be set to various settings to cut vegetables and fruits at uniform sizes. French fries are cut with a mandoline set on the julienne setting and it can be used to slice perfectly circular thin potatoes and zucchini for gratin making. Let's all head off to market in search of the most functional mandoline. Bookmark the mandolines that you find in the Yum Market on TeamSugar with the keyword tag Mandoline.
