Truffade is a dish that used to be cooked in summer by shepherds in their “burons” (mountain cabins). It takes its name from the local patois for potato, “trufada”.

This deliciously hearty dish of potatoes and fresh Cantal tomme cheese is almost a primal pleasure!

Recipe for truffade - it's easly!

If the words “melted cheese” and “potato” instantly make your mouth water, you’re ready to cook truffade!

The potatoes are sliced and browned in a pan. When the potatoes are cooked and nice and soft, pieces of cheese are added on top, then mixed in as they melt. The cheese becomes soft yet crispy at the same time.

Serve your truffade with green salad and a slice of local cured ham.
