Torgnolette, Polenta concia, Fonduta, Crespelle alla VDA
Potatoes, fontina and leeks are the basic ingredients to prepare an excellent Torgnolette, another typical recipe of the area based on mountain potatoes, leeks, bacon, fontina and a hint of broth. Polenta concia, on the other hand, is based on corn flour and also butter. It is a very famous dish in the hamlet of Torgnon, but also in the rest of the Aosta Valley. Fondue, on the other hand, is another typical dish, although it should be called “ingredient” rather than “dish”, since it is used in many recipes. Crespelle instead are based on cooked fondue, flour, milk and resemble a mix of very liquid pancakes and fused cheese. Many prefer to add cooked ham and some even butter and pepper, depending on their taste.
