Tartiflette is a dish from Savoy in the French Alps and is a comforting and filling dish made with potatoes, Reblochon cheese, bacon and onions. You can also add in a cheeky splash of white wine to give it that authentic alpine vibe.

This, however, is a quick version. Normally, tartiflette has cream, but we didn’t have any and we used full-fat milk instead. If you are looking for a way of using up potatoes that are looking a bit rough around the edges, then this is a dish for you.

Tartiflette is derived from tartifle, which means “potato” in the local language.

Do you eat the rind from Reblochon cheese?

Yes, the rind can be eaten.

What to serve with tartiflette?

Steamed vegetables, a green salad, and fresh crusty bread all go well with tartiflette.

What wine should I serve with tartiflette?

White wines such as a dry Riesling or a buttery Chardonnay go well. Don’t disregard reds, try a Pinot Noir.
