This French Copper Pommes Anna Pan is what that delicious buttery golden potato cake known as pommes Anna is made in. Created in 19th century Paris by chef Adolphe Dugléré, of the Café Anglais, for his favorite customer – the celebrated courtesan Anna Deslions. Most likely made by Mauviel especially for the celebrated Mr. Lamalle's N.Y.C. shop.
This pan has a lid designed to fit tightly over the base, and the short "oreilles" handles are meant to be held together so you can invert the pan during the cooking process. You can easily prepare the classic dish in your own kitchen using this authentic two-piece copper pan made in France. Makes a wonderful gratin dish too, or, if you prefer ordering in, a stunning addition to your antique French copper.
