Remarks
I think it's good too with other cheeses like St. Nectaire farmhouse or Mont d'Or, but of course this is not a "true" tartiflette.

Is this a true one? Not really says Julie (born in the region) who tells me that the potatoes should be fried in a pan before going in the dish. Nathalie, from Bellegarde, on the other hand, doesn't cook the potatoes, she just puts them into cold water and stops when they come to the boil. Well, as you see, one recipe but many versions...

All the proportions indicated can be easily changed according to taste.

And to drink?

The ideal wine is, of course, a white wine from Savoy, like Abymes or Apremont.
Keeping
Several days in the fridge, in a closed jar.

Classic italian recipe (the name means "pull me up" or more poetically, "take me up to the sky"). It's similar to a charlotte in its structure: layers of flavoured biscuits between layers of smooth cream.

  • Hello I made the potato dish vegan style. I used cashew milk that I thickened a little with potato starch and I added nutmeg salt white pepper, powdered garlic. I used smoked tofu instead of bacon and I used vegan cheese on top with a sprinkle of parsley. Yummie
