Hotpot designates a type of culinary preparation whose name comes from the clay pot in which it was originally cooked. A hotpot is generally referred to as a mixture of meat or cold meats, vegetables and potatoes, cooked in the broth which is absorbed by the ingredients. The dish is traditionally cooked over low heat for several hours in a casserole dish for example and served as a single dish.
Hotpot is an ancient and popular dish that can be found with various local variations in all parts of Europe, and which has various names (such as hochepot). It is similar to garbure and pot-au-feu, but is distinguished by its solid appearance.
The meat used is mainly pork, in various forms (bacon, head, breast, shank, tail, sausage, ham), but we also meet beef, mutton, lamb, veal, chicken, goose , guinea fowl or duck. The vegetables used are often winter vegetables, such as cabbage, carrots, turnips, celery… and, often, potatoes.
The Auvergnate hotpot is made with cabbage, potatoes, lean bacon, pork knuckle and sausage. In order to blend the flavors, they are first cooked together. Then, the cabbages are braised with the cold cuts. This dish is served sprinkled with its broth. This can also be used to make a soup with slices of stale bread.
Can be accompanied by a red wine, Cahors or Madiran.
