the inca grew potatoes in their mountain terrace farms. with different varieties grown at different elevations. so it seemed the best guess.

developed in the 1980s to market a variety of cheese; the alpine dish tartiflette is a gratin of potatoes, onion, bacon, cream and which soft cheese, made from unpasteurized cows' milk?

I came across a recipe for Tartiflette within the last couple of weeks, I bookmarked it as ‘one to make’ and ...

...I can’t remember the cheese involved <doh>

camembert is a delicious soft cow cheese. but it originates in north france in normandy, not the mountains.

not boursin, a brand of gournay cheese also from the north of france.

the cheese in question is a traditional cheese, and is protected by aoc (appellation d'origine contrôlée) certfication.

I actually had some nice posh chesses very recently, I think last November. I bought a whole load of the most expensive and weird looking cheeses from Marks and Spencer's international cheeses 'finest' shelf. It included a posh French cream cheese encased inside a little wooden rounded box, but I have already long since forgotten what it was called. It tasted lovely though.
