Honestly, this is one of the coolest events/menus we have done since we opened in 2008. There are many communal cheese dishes from France, fondue being perhaps the best known in the states. TARTIFLETTE – in France just as well-known as fondue – is often served at festive events, even if the event is simply to get together to eat tartiflette. Due to the nature of the dish, the cheese and execution, we can only do this for parties of two or four people.
Tartiflette is a traditional gratin of potato, bacon and slow cooked onions, cooked all together with a little Vin de Savoie, crème fraîche, and a whole wheel of creamy Reblochon cheese. Like fondu or Raclette, this dish is a favorite at French family gatherings and parties.
Our Tartiflette Dinner is a celebration of this cheese-centric Savoie speciality, paired with traditional courses from that region. This meal is served family style, and is meant to be enjoyed by two or four people. As is tradition, a glass of white Vin de Savoie is used to make the tartiflette, so guests are highly encouraged to enjoy this meal with a glass or a bottle since it will be the perfect pairing.
