Taste Traditional Tourtons and Ravioli from Champsaur
Small, hot pockets of dough stuffed with potatoes, vegetables, cheese or cold meats (or sometimes with stewed fruits), tourtons are a top delicacy of the Champsaur region. Traditionally, they were served during the holiday season, but now you can enjoy them all year round. To do so, visit the Tourtonnerie de l’Ubaye in Barcelonnette. Though the tourtons look like ravioli, Champsaur ravioli actually resemble mozzarella sticks or spring rolls made from potatoes, tomme cheese, and eggs. They are eaten as a starter or as part of a main meal alongside meat. They also can be served with raspberry jam, or honey.
