What is Vegetable Au Gratin?

Vegetable au gratin is a dish originating from France, where Gratin refers to a method of cooking. Gratinading essentially means heating the food on high heat from the top till it gets golden brown and crispy. This method is applied in many other dishes like potato gratin and chicken au gratin.
