This is a dish made with camembert cheese, potatoes, onion and bacon and fits perfect on a cold winter day. The original dish tartiflette is made with reblochon cheese instead of camembert cheese. It’s a heavy dish so a green salad and a French baguette is all you need on the side.
Gougère is a French choux dough mixed with gruyère or Comte cheese. The size can be from 3-12 cm., and sometimes it is filled with mushrooms, beef or ham.
