I like to serve this dish with an assortment of cold cuts, particularly good dried-cured mountain hams.

It is very important to use a farm-style reblochon or maybe a fruity reblochon, but definitely not a refined reblochon, because it is horribly lacking in flavor. The best reblochon can usually be found from the end of July to the beginning of December, because of the quality of the milk.

Along the same lines but a bit lighter, I heartily recommend the scalloped potato recipe
