How to make Tartiflette

For one last winter treat (and especially if you’re missing the mountains) – why not create a bit of the alpine experience at home by making a yummy tartiflette!  Really easy to make, great for a crowd and completely delicious!

There are lots of variations to this recipe but the basics are: potatoes, bacon, onions, garlic, cream and the most important ingredient – Reblochon cheese (available in most supermarkets these days).

The Method

We cut potatoes into equal(ish) sized cubes and par-boil until you can just stick a fork through them.  While the potatoes are boiling, fry up a chopped onion, a clove of garlic and some bacon slices or lardons.  Once they are cooking nicely we add a large splash of dry white wine and reduce it down slightly, then mix in the drained potatoes and add a good glug of single or double cream (it’s not exactly a low fat meal so you may as well use double!).  Next we cut the Reblochon cheese through the middle so you effectively have 2 x ‘tops’.  Place these cheese halves over the potato mix in an oven proof dish and cook for about 30 minutes or until the cheese is nicely melted.

The essential accompaniments for tartiflette are a well dressed green salad and a bowl of cornichons or little pickled onions.

Bon appétit!

One of the loveliest chalets we have stayed in, large rooms, private swimming pool. We had food delivered to the chalet so we could eat when we like, shopping was done for us when we arrived. Skis brought to the chalet. Paddy, who owns and runs the chalet, is lovely, friendly,always there to answer questions and run us any where on request, the perfect host. Fabulous holiday with views to die for. X

A beautifully appointed and presented luxury chalet with great views. Paddy & his team (Chris, Becky & Shauna) seamlessly attended to our every need both in the chalet and on the mountain. Thank you for making our week so wonderful. Stuart YB

La Belle Vache was awesome. The house was beautiful and well-appointed, in a great location. The house is comfortable with great space to hang out, cook, and enjoy the mountains. Paddy was also wonderful, and met our every need and request. He was so helpful with making arrangements so that our ski week was seamless and so much fun. We highly recommend this property and Paddy!

Really special stay. Paddy and his team made everything easy and comfortable. We appreciated all the considered details, from our names on the pool towel rack to the kids’ nooks throughout.

We had a wonderful holiday with Paddy and his team. When we arrived we were warmly welcomed by Paddy & Tessa, the fire was roaring, the chef Harry was cooking a delicious meal and Braydon was preparing welcome drinks, after a long journey with kids it was just bliss! The chalet was fantastic and the service all week was second to none. All equipment delivered to the chalet, and we were taken to the slopes by Paddy. We even got delicious cakes and tea after a long day skiing. Thanks again folks!
