Côte restaurants have launched a special alpine menu to celebrate the traditional ski dish Tartiflette.
It’s one of the best parts of a ski holiday, the incredible food you long for after a long day on the slopes.
And one of the most loved après-ski dishes is the Tartiflette, derived from the word for potato, enjoyed by skiers as the perfect way to unwind.
As news of snowfall in the Alps is eagerly awaited, those wanting the taste of the slopes but without the travel can enjoy the classic Tartiflette and more at Côte.
The sumptuous dish, which was introduced to the menu last year and is back by popular demand, is a delicious combination of Reblochon and Comté cheese, smoked bacon lardons and sliced potatoes served with a crunchy sourdough baguette.
Enjoy the Tartiflette Luxe, a grand Tartiflette to share, and this will be additionally served with truffle saucisson, Bayonne ham, honey tomatoes and cornichons.
The exclusive Alpine menu which will be available until March 2 also includes the well-loved dish ‘Diots’, a traditional French starter of smoked sausage and cherry tomatoes in a white wine and caramelised onion sauce served with sourdough baguette.
In addition, the new Spiced Blood Orange Mule, a cocktail of spiced rum, Fever-Tree spiced orange ginger ale and blood orange, will warm up any winter chills.
For a delicious dessert, the Alpine specials are finished with an apple and blackberry crumble tart, with spiced apple and blackberry filling, served with cinnamon ice cream and winter berry coulis.
A Côte spokesperson said: “At Côte we love to celebrate and explore the richness of France’s many regions, and this season we are inspired by the French Alps.
This bubbling, baked dish is a staple of Alpine cuisine. No trip to the cold, crisp Alps is complete without indulging in layers of fluffy potatoes, smoked bacon lardons, caramelised onions, and rich Reblochon cheese.”
