Potato Artichoke and Goat Cheese Gratin

I think I need to buy a goat. And some chickens.

Although I grew up on a farm, and at the time I found very little of our remote, sequestered-from-civilization-and-my-friends, life very appealing, I now want a little bit of that back. Not all of it. I want to live in the city, a big, huge, full of energy, and excitement, city but with a goat and a couple chickens.

I hope that can someday be possible.

Maybe I’ll move from food blogging to creating lofts in downtown LA with rooftop chicken/goat farms. I think people would be into it.

Until then, I have to settle for putting goat cheese in everything.

I did just find out about Redwood Hill. A goat cheese farm in Sebastopol, CA that is 100% solar powdered and nearly landfil-free, reusing and recycling as much as they can. As well as giving all employees & their families members great health benefits, this is a company I can give my full support. Along with being a pioneer in the humane treatment of animals (they love the crap out of their goats, even the old ones who are past the milk giving prime) they were eco-friendly and free range before it was hipster chic. I love places like this. I love being able to tell you about them.

I hope they will let me visit, feed me cheese and let me pet their goats.

 

 

Chicken in Creamy Mushroom Beer Sauce

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken thigh fillets
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 3 tbs butter
  • 1/4 cup onions, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 5 oz wild mushrooms, such as Shiitake (not dried)
  • 1/2 cup beer
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup shredded parmesan
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. In a pan over medium high heat, melt the butter. Sprinkle chicken thighs on all sides with salt and pepper. Add chicken to the pan and cook on both sides until browned, about 4 minutes per side. Remove chicken from pan.
  2. Add onions and saute until soft and translucent, about 3 minutes.
  3. Add garlic and mushrooms, cook until mushrooms are soft and have darkened, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the beer, scraping the bottom to deglaze the pan.
  5. Reduce heat to medium, add the cream and stir.
  6. Add half of the cheese, stir until melted. Add the remaining half, stir until combined.
  7. Add the chicken and allow to cook until sauce has thickened, about 5 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste, serve over rice or pasta.

Jackie, we may just be long lost sisters. I have been totally fixated on buying local grass-fed beef and cage-free, antibiotic-free chicken and it’s so dang hard to find here that I keep thinking I just need to buy a chicken and become an urban farmer. Let’s do it! Now I’ll be on the lookout for local goat cheese too. I can’t get enough goat cheese lately. And this gratin is gorgeous. Great combo of ingredients!

You should! Clear some space from the roof of your loft. Although, it maybe a little cold up there. Chicken heating blankets?

Love the big artichoke pieces in here – they add so much texture to anything. I love spinach/artichoke dip or anything with artichokes in it!

Seriously. I could put them in every savory dish I make.

You know, as much as a city girl I am, after going to Iowa and learning about the farming process and everything, I want some cage-free animals and I want farm-fresh eggs every morning and a goat and a cow. This gratin looks decadently creamy and delicious! I love au gratins!

Once you get behind the scenes of a farm, it’s really eye opening. I want chicken as soon as I’m a bit more settled.

Is there anything better than goat cheese?!! This looks yumtastic!

This looks like the best high-end comfort food, I love it! And I must confess I was turned off "farm fresh" by the eggs my sister always has that had some unpleasant surprises inside and feathers, blood, and poop still stuck to the outside 🙂 I’m a city girl I guess!

I would totally live in your loft with a rooftop chicken/goat farm! Wouldn’t that be a dream?!

And this dish is to die for! I can’t give up anything involving goat cheese!

When we went to the state fair a few weeks ago (hush!), I totally fawned over this exhibit of chicken houses. Is that what they’re called? Anyway, they were super fancy ones and I realized that I really need some hens in the backyard for fresh eggs and a fancy house to put them in. And adding artichokes to a potato gratin? Awesome!

I totally want some chickens. Seems a little more do-able than goats right now, but I’even looked into coops. Maybe someday 🙂

Maggie November 6, 2012 um 9:50 pm

Chickens are great! We had few for a couple of years. Love, love, love getting eggs! You just have to keep them safe…especially in the city! If you do go to this blissful place of cheese and goats you must take pictures of Tater and goats!!

Jackie November 7, 2012 um 10:38 am

Of course! Although she seems to think goats are just malformed "doggies." Seems like a farm visit is a must!

City life with some chickens, sounds like a great combination to me! And so does this mix of pototo artichoke and goat cheese: it looks so satisfying. Being a goat cheese lover, this is perfect for me!

I would love that! I have an aunt who lives in Sebastopol, I’ll have to coordinate a visit with those weekends 🙂

Hi…I’m trying this now. But…when do you add the artichoke hearts and S&P?? I’m going to toss them in with the sunchokes and potatos since I doubt you’ll respond in the next 10 mins 🙂
but, others may need to know too. If it’s yummy (like I know it must be!) I’ll remake for the family for the holidays. Thanks!

Jackie November 8, 2012 um 11:31 am

You add them with the cream at the end. I’ll fix is as soon as I get to a computer! (on my phone right now) thanks 🙂

I want to make this, but I’m super annoyed that the recipe lists the potatoes in "cups" rather than how many potatoes should be used. GRRRRR. A pet peeve of mine.

Reply

Jackie November 10, 2013 um 10:21 am

Potato sizes vary wildly from region to region, while cups is a static measurement. If I say "two large russet potatoes" that may be 1 cup in places where potatoes are smaller and 4 cups in places where potatoes grow much larger. It helps with consistency.
