Tartiflette, a french tradition


Tartiflette is a French dish from the Haute Savoie region of France. It is made with potatoes, reblochon cheese, cream, and lardons.

This meal is not for the faint hearted, nor those on a diet. Not surprisingly it is very popular in French ski resorts and it often conveys an image of friendliness, authenticity, and soil of the mountain.

The tartiflette recipe saw a revival in the 1980’s when the Union Interprofessional Reblochon used it to promote sales of the reblochon cheese. The dish was then also confirmed by Christian Millau (Gault-Millau Guide) in his dictionary of gastronomy lovers.

Should you visit France in the winter, try a tartiflette. You will not be disappointed!
