Of all the octopus dishes I prepare regularly, this one ranks at the very top of my list of favorites.
Both the octopus stew and the horseradish-mashed potatoes are delicious enough to serve as a meal by themself, the stew served with a good sour-dough bread, and the potatoes served with a nice leafy-greens salad. However, combined in this wonderful hit of a dish, it makes for a super delicious, beautiful, yet simple to prepare meal.

  1. I tried to ask this question earlier, Hans, but it did not get through. When you say “Bordeaux” obviously you do not mean a fine wine; but do you mean red or white wine, please?

    Thank you

  2. In reply to:What a good idea to use tinned octopus – it saves prep. time.
    One question: what kind of Bordeaux should be used – not a premier grand cru classé, of course; but do you use red or while? Presumably red as you use tomatoes, even though it is a fish dish. Lovely recipe!

    Peter,
    I used red. White would be just as fine, it is a matter of personal preference of the moment,. I have used red or white at different occasions, and the result is equally delicious 🙂
    As a general guide line, the wines I use in cooking are the wines I have in the house to drink or serve guests. No “cooking wine” in my kitchen 🙂
    Life is good 🙂

    1. Thank you very much, Hans. My original question and your reply must have got lost in cyberspace, somewhere.

      I agree that “cooking wine” (so-called) is awful; and so, if it is not good to drink then it is not good to add to a dish.

  3. If I saw this on a restaurant menu I would immediately close the menu and order this dish! Chef Hans, you have such a repertoire.
