Potato Chip Torta

Initially, the combination of beaten eggs and potato chips might be a tad strange. But if you're like me, the more you think about it, the more it seems like absolute genius. The first time I came across this recipe was in Ferran Adrià's cookbook The Family Meal, which, in my opinion, is one of the best cookbooks to come out in the last few years. During the holidays I gave away no less than 6 copies to friends and family. Needless to say, I recommend it.

This recipe is very simple, but flipping the torta takes a bit of practice. Don't get discouraged, take your time, and be gentle. It may take more than one time, but you'll get it eventually. Once you give this dish a try the practice wont be an issue because you'll be craving a slice every Sunday morning.
