Beef Wellington

Occasionally, we want to cook a classic recipe. The idea was to dine with friends, enjoying a good meal of meat, accompanied by a glass of wine. After a brief consultation, we decided for a classic roast. when to the butcher we saw that gorgeous fillet, we could not resist, and we immediately thought to beef Wellington. The dinner was quickly eaten, no leftovers, and the bottle of Merlot disappeared….. In short, a nice night with good friends.

My tartiflette

Today’s recipe is a typical winter dish, even if Spring is approaching. The tartiflette comes from a region of France and it is similar to a potatoes gratin. Infact, it is made with potatoes, reblochon cheese, cream, and lardons, even if I used rolled pancetta. The Union Interprofessional Reblochon developed the recipe in the 1980s to promote sales of the reblochon cheese. It is a greedy dish to share with friends.
