Aligot, an Aveyronnais spectacle

Aligot

 

Aligot certainly does come from the Aubrac. You don’t know what it is yet? Well, it’s a spectacle; Imagine the scene, you are in a buron on the vast Aubrac plateau. Perhaps it’s cold outside, you’ve just finished a long walk on snow shoes and you sit down at a table next to a nice warm crackling fire.

 

And then, someone brings you a great dish that seems to be just mashed potato. But then, the master of the house takes a utensil and skilfully handles the aligot that is drawn out into stringy lengths. The expert puts it on your plate and as best you can, you lift a forkful of this substance to your mouth as you continue to draw it out into ever finer strings. And that’s when it melts in your mouth: is it the tome fraîche, the garlic, the potatoes? It’s aligot. Warning, it’s addictive!
