The Anna of pommes Anna was a real person, but there were so many chef superfans hanging around Paris in the 1800s, we don't know which Anna it was! (Many Annas hung around the Café Anglais, where chef Adolphe Dugléré created pommes Anna.) Whomever Anna was, her potatoes are divine, with garlic, Parmesan, and butter, the trio also known as the best things in life. They bring out the absolute best in this tender steak, enrobed with a combo mustard and cherry preserves that's lip-smacking, fork-licking perfection. Rest in peace, Anna. Your pommes live forever. Tip: Make quick work of mincing garlic by smashing the whole clove with the side of your chef's knife. Then rock the knife back and forth, keeping the tip steady by resting your other hand over the top.
