Raclette is a European cheesy treat! A round of cheese is placed either fireside or under a specialty metal grill. As the cheese bubbles and melts into pure deliciousness it is scrapped off the round onto a plate. Traditionally it is served with pickles, onions, small potatoes and cured meats. Restaurants, farmers markets and cheese stores across Europe serve this traditional cheese blessing! The cheese is even scraped onto crusty baguette for those of us who crave it on the go!
It’s a great idea to emulate at home! If it’s just you and a loved one slice a baguette in half and top with your favorite melting cheese. Place under your oven grill set on high. For a small get together it’s a great way to keep your guests social and actively involved in the meal. Small home versions of the grill machine are available for home use. Put a spread out of cold meats, vegetables and garnishes. Watch your guests laugh the night away as they scrape the cheesy goodness. Because no matter how old we are, we all love to play with our food.
