Second trip to the ski resort of Isola 2000, second helping of tasty, rich warming melted cheese and potato variation.

It may not be the healthiest,  the amount of reblochon, camembert, and… tartiflette,  an Alpine cheese that is traditionlly used only in this dish of potatoes, onions, creme fraiche and lardons  Basically a more rustic, hearty dauphinoise.

 

We had a spinach salad with it to justify eating the whole bowls worth. I dread to think how much saturated fat I consumed but you know,  sometimes it’s the only thing that cuts it up on the mountain in -8C conditions, along with a few glasses of vin chaud of course!
