Are you looking for something a little different to server for two this Valentine’s Day weekend? How about Tartiflette. A quick search online will result in several recipes. They all should have some similar ingredients.
Sautee some onions and some lardons ahead of time. Par boil some waxy potatoes. Heat up a bit of white wine with some crème fraiche. Add a dash of salt and pepper to the liquid. Slice the potatoes about 1/3″ thick. Toss everything together and place it in a casserole dish. Top with Reblochon. In our example today, we’re not using reblochon. We’re using a slightly milder cheese from Quebec called Champfleury. Don’t get us wrong. Reblochon is awesome. However, Champfleury is a fraction of the price. How can it not taste good with bacon, onions and crème fraiche?
I know we haven’t listed exact ingredients and quantities. We encourage you to look up a recipe that sounds good to you and go for it. Once you’ve made it a couple of times, you can just wing it. Hopefully you end up with something that looks a little like this.
We’ve added a new feature to our roster of frozen soups, a classic, old-school lobster bisque. We started off with fish stock using halibut bones sourced from Finest at Sea. Then we simmered that with a little more mirpoix and lobster shells from The Lobster Man. We finished this base off with a few more ingredients, including some dark roux, whipping cream, brandy, tomato and seasoning.
Use it as a soup/fish course for your next dinner party. We recommend you serve it on its own, or garnish it with a little bit of cooked lobster meat as a garnish.
We’re raffling off a 50 year old Mussini “I’Il Privilegio” Balsamic Vinegar to support the St. James Music Academy. The Mussini family have been dedicated to making traditional balsamic vinegar of Modena since 1909.
Valued at $350, The 50 year old balsamic vinegar is on display at the East Vancouver location of les amis du FROMAGE. Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased at the East Vancouver location of les amis du FROMAGE. One winner will be drawn on February 14, 2015. 100% of the proceeds will go to the St. James Music Academy.
The Saint James Music Academy supports inner-city children who have limited or no access to quality music education. We think that’s great. We hope you do to.
