Tartiflette and crunchy pear ravioli recipe
Tartiflette takes its roots from a traditional recipe called Péla, a gratin of potato, onion and cheese. Although the name is etymologically close to tartiflâ (meaning ‘potato’ in the local dialect), the recipe was perfected in the 1980s by the Inter-Professional Union for Reblochon in an attempt to boost sales of the cheese. A good call on their part!
