At a party for a large group, potatoes are usually served in mashed potatoes. And if you don't eat this dish right away, it will become cold and completely tasteless. That's why it's worth making a potato gratin. Here, the potatoes are baked in a delicate sauce, covered with a crust, and remain appetizing even when cold.

The idea of making potato gratin was published on the Instagram page of food blogger Alex Mil (mil_alexx).
