Description: Raclette is a semi-hard cheese made on both sides of the French and Swiss Alps. It is made using ancestral methods with unpasteurised milk of cows grazing on the alpine meadows. The name Raclette comes from the French word "racler", which means "to scrape".
After the cheese is produced, it is exposed to smoke generated from a wood fire highly humid atmosphere. This atmosphere allows the smoke flavor to penetrate into the cheese, giving it a rustic element to its already caramelly and nutty taste. The end result is a semi-soft cheese with an off-white, ivory colored pate and rich brown rind.
Serving Tips: Raclette is also the name of a Swiss dish where the cheese is melted in front of a fire or a special machine and the melted parts are scraped onto diner's plates. It is then served with small potatoes, gherkins, pickled onions and air dried meat.
