It has always been important to me to use local ingredients whenever possible and so for one of this season’s starters, I decided that I wanted to take a typical Savoyard dish and give it fun and modern twist.

It is a dish consisting of sliced potatoes, bacon and onions cooked in cream with huge dollops of the most famous of the local cheeses, Reblochon, melted on top. It is extremely delicious and perfect hearty fare when skiing in cold weather but also a bit too heavy for a sophisticated evening meal.
