Homemade Tartiflet

Tartiflette is a gratin of potatoes, bacon, onions on which we melt Reblochon, a cheese produced in Pays de Savoie and made in Aravis and Val d’Arly.
This modern recipe is inspired by a traditional dish called “paella”: potatoes, onions and cheese are made in a very long-handled pan called a paella (shovel) in Sevoird, Arpitan dialect. The tartiflet differs mainly by the method of cooking and the addition of white wine. The name “tartiflet”, a recent invention, derives from the name of the potato in Savoyard, tartifla, a word also found in Provençal tartifle.

Tartiflette is also a dish of the Aosta Valley cuisine, distributed in the upper Aosta Valley, especially in Arvier, often under the name of trifolate, from the type of Francoprovencal Valdostan patois of the Upper Valley.
