I make soup when I make the Turned Potatoes; it's a good way to use up the scraps and I don't feel like I'm wasting food to make something fancy. The Turned Potatoes and Carrots make an impressive side dish and, while they are a bit fussy, they're not difficult. The Marchand de Vin is another French Classic - but this is an easy adaptation.

A velvety soup with just hint of spice from the ginger! Add more if you like.... The sherry cuts the carrot's sweetness just enough, and the potato adds a bit more substance. Add more or less chicken stock according to preference.

This sauce in lovely with filet mignon, but use any tender steak that you like. Use a hot skillet or grill pan to cook quickly, adjusting time for desired degree of doneness. The sauce is simple, but intensely flavorful... And easier than the original.

These look trickier than they are: they take a bit of work and planning but make an impressive side dish for steaks or roasts. The carving and blanching can be done in advance, making it an elegant party dish as well. You should be able to turn potatoes and carrots for 2 people in 5 - 10 minutes.
