Cookbook: Hachis Parmentier  Media: Hachis Parmentier

In haute cuisine, hachis Parmentier (French pronunciation: [aʃi paʁmɑ̃ˈtje]) is a dish made with mashed, baked potato, combined with diced meat and sauce lyonnaise and served in the potato shells.[1] In general use, a simpler version is the French equivalent of cottage or shepherd's pie.[2]

The dish is named after Antoine-Augustin Parmentier, a French pharmacist, nutritionist, and inventor who, in the late 18th century, was instrumental in the promotion of the potato as an edible crop. The word "hachis" means a dish in which the ingredients are chopped or minced, from the same root as the English word "hatchet".[2][3]
