Limerick has been buzzing over the past few weeks and we have been delighted to be able to participate in peoples Christmas fun and cheer by being host to many Christmas parties and family get togethers at the restaurant. One of our very popular dishes during this cold winter weather has been our Tartiflette dish which we serve as both a starter and a main course in the restaurant. Tartiflette is a potato based dish popular in skiing resorts and mountain regions in France. Thomas is delighted to share this tasty recipe for you to try out at home.
