In a mortar put some grains of coarse salt and carefully stack the two cloves of garlic disguised.
Meanwhile, poach cod with skin and two bay leaves 5 to 7 minutes, and cook potatoes with two bay leaves.
Steam the cod very thin by adding a little warm oil and warm milk too. Peel your hot potatoes.
In a terra-cotta dish, on the slow-cooking wood stove, put a spoonful of olive oil and just warm it, add the potatoes to the cod and smooth well, if it is too thick add lukewarm milk, or oil according to your taste.
Once the brandade is finished, sprinkle PASTIS HENRI BARDOUIN, "quanto bene, that is to say I taste and I add until it becomes delicious, the worst is that it is fantastic".
