Steak Hache, Tarteflette & Haricot Verts.

Sunday 22nd May 2011

Or to you & me, hamburger, cheese & potato tart with green beans. 😉

Tarteflette is my new best friend. When I made it the first time, I couldn’t find reblochon cheese but when we went to France for the Easter break there was a whole selection of cheeses specifically for tarteflette. In fact, they had there own section in the cold store.

To be honest, I didn’t notice a difference from using camembert the first time. It was still incredibly rich and very more-ish.

The good news is that my son, Zephyrus, ate it this time. I suppose melted soft cheese is a bit of an acquired taste.

I was walking past my son’s room after lights out, when I saw him looking at my iPhone.

“Come on big guy, time for sleep now.” I whispered.

“Daddy…I just wanted to look at the blog.”

How could I resist? I gave him 10 minutes and told him I’d be back. When I returned he was completely under the covers still reading my blog.

“What did you think?” I probed.

“Good Daddy…really good…” He replied enthusiastically. “…How many hits have we had Daddy?”

“About 4 thousand.”

“When’s it gonna be a million Daddy.”

“One day…” I said wistfully. “…one day.”

    Aw…. cutie. How awesome that Z likes the blog!

    Re. your tarteflette, my mom calls it “au gratin potatoes” – and she makes it with cheddar cheese. It’s delish. 🙂

  2. Oh, to go cheese shopping in France! I can only imagine.
