We were looking at making a menu for our coming time off, and with all the cheese in the fridge, we said “LET’S MAKE a TARTIFLETTE!” It is made with potatoes, reblochon type cheese, white wine, cream, lardons and onions. What’s not to like!
A fridge full of cheese shows a host or hostess is ready for entertaining. As food goes, cheese is perfectly suited for small gatherings, office parties and family get-togethers.
It does not need much preparation and makes it an easy way to make everyone feel a little spoiled. But best of all, you can use the leftovers to treat yourself to a wonderful mac & cheese, a fondue or enjoy simply on their own.
Fall is upon us with bright leaves and cooler days that call for warm meals filled with scrumptious flavours. It is when we start planning meals with family and friends in the warmth of our home. We are all busy and an easy option, a raclette, is a fun stress-free meal to share that can create memorable gatherings. There is no cooking in advance – except to boil some potatoes – and the preparation is limited to chopping up a few vegetables and plating up the cheese. What could be easier!
This month we are featuring 2 cheeses from la Fromagerie Montebello. I had a family gathering in the Montebello area, and Sandra and I thought we had to get these two wonderful and flavourful cheeses back to you again. We hope you, like us, will enjoy these beauties. To compliment, we chose a hard cheese from Kaiser, the Miranda.
