The real croziflette of Savoie – France

Version française  La Croziflette… The one ! 100% comfort food, especially when it’s snowing… The croziflette looks a little bit like a tartiflette but with crozets instead of potatoes. You can therefore make it only if you have a box of Crozets at home but it seems that it’s hard to find out of France. Crozets are these little squares of pasta made of buckwheat that you can find everywhere in the Alps.  ...
