B.A .ba of the chief

– Pizza is a typical recipe of the cultures of the Mediterranean basin. Salty or sweet, pizza delights young and old. Remember to include vegetables! A good trick to make them appetizing in the eyes of children.

– Reblochon can be replaced by munster, livarot or even brie. Dare to include pear or quince slices!

Cellar side

Pizza has the gift of adapting to all cultures, and this is the alpine version that is offered here, through its crossbreeding with the famous tartiflette, an invigorating winter dish far removed from the Mediterranean and summery expression to which we are accustomed. Here no tomato but potatoes, no anchovies but smoked bacon, and as cheese, Reblochon.

The sweetness and softness of the whole call for wines with sustained acidity which will bring, by their freshness, lightness and digestibility to the whole. We think of course of an Apremont for an alpine agreement; in the same sense, but with a softer character, we can also choose a white Loire wine made from the Chenin grape variety such as an Anjou white.

As far as red wines are concerned, if you wish to bring an aromatic contrast, you will prefer the fruitiness of a Gamay from the Côtes roannaises, whereas a Touraine-Mesland, with its smoky notes, will go more in the direction of the dish.
