Preparation method

  • Preheat the oven to 160°C.
  • Peel the potatoes. Quickly rinse them in plenty of water and then grate with a coarse grater.
  • Finely chop the chives using a sharp knife. 
  • Mix the cream with the egg yolk and the chives.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Add the potatoes and mix well.
  • Strain through a coarse sieve and collect the liquid.
  • Grease the springform pan with the butter.
  • Add the drained potatoes and press down until completely even on the surface.
  • Pour the collected liquid over the potatoes.
  • Bake in the oven for approximately 30 minutes until done.
  • Use a peeler to prick the potatoes to test if they’re done. If there’s little resistance, you can take the tart out of the oven. 
  • Release the tart from the springform pan and cut into pieces. Serve immediately or cool to 4°C.
