Tartiflette

A favourite in ski resorts and mountain restaurants

If you need warming up from a long day on the ski slopes there is nothing more comforting than a dish of tartiflette!

A substantial meal of potatoes layered with cheese, cream and pieces of bacon, this is an ever popular dish in Chamonix mountain restaurants. Individual portions will usually be cooked and served in an earthenware dish, but you may also see it being cooked in enormous skillets (usually in self-service mountain restaurants) and dished up with a green side salad.

It is perfect skiing food due to it being hot, tasty and extremely filling – although it may put an end to further activity for a few hours!
