Côte at Home have unveiled their taste of the ski season specially designed by Gordon Ramsay’s former executive chef Steve Allen.

Steve has focused on fresh seasonal ingredients to showcase the kind of classic French cuisine perennially popular off the ski slopes and now available in your maison.

The Alpine menu features the seasonal favourite Tartiflette, one of the most loved après-ski dishes, its name comes from the word for potato. 

It’s a combination of Reblochon and Comté cheese, smoked bacon lardons, sliced potatoes and caramelised onions served with a crunchy sourdough baguette.

Try the Tartiflette or upski to the Tartiflette luxe menu which serves 3-4 guests and includes:

– Saucisson Sec aux Truffes – Saucisson with black truffle. Produced from the finest cuts of pork from the Rhône Alpes region.

– Bayonne Ham – Cured ham from the ancient port city of Bayonne in the southwest of France.

– Cornichons

– Sourdough Demi-Baguette

Tartiflette is best enjoyed with a glass of Côtes du Rhône Rouge. This lighter bodied red wine has juicy freshness, and notes of peppery spice from Syrah grapes. Sunny aromas of dried provencal herbs complete this perfect pairing with the smoky, salty bacon, and rich creamy cheeses.

For cheese lovers there’s a classic Cheese fondue. A creamy and smooth melted cheese fondue made from Comté, Morbier and Roquefort cheeses, with Dijon mustard . Served with accompaniments for dipping:

– Saucisson Sec aux Truffes – Saucisson with black truffle. Produced from the finest cuts of pork from the Rhône Alpes region.

– New Potatoes

– Sourdough Demi-Baguette

– Choose to add a fondue set to your order for a truly authentic experience.

Cheese fondue goes well with a glass of Côte’s Chardonnay Maison L’Aiglon, a wine with enough richness and body to compete with cheese, but enough fresh acidity to refresh the palate. Chardonnay brings buttery and toasty oak notes but with a fresh tropical zing to cut through the decadence.

And to finish try the Alpine Chocolate Chaud (£14.95), a decadent and rich hot chocolate with Grand Marnier liqueur and cream. Serves 3 – 4 people.

Or the Pear Alpine Tart (£11.95), an almond frangipane & pear tart served with blueberry compote. Enjoy with a glass of our Late Bottled Vintage Port, Quinta do Crasto 2013. The plummy richness of a good vintage port perfectly mirrors the blueberries in this pudding, whilst providing the necessary sweetness to balance the dish.
