Raclette is the cheese of legend, based on the story of a man by the name of Leon. One cold day, with food scarce in the open pastures, Leon heated up a piece of cheese on the open fire to ease his hunger and keep warm. He found the melted cheese had a transcendent flavor. It not only complemented other foods – it made a great, satisfying meal for his family. Popular since the Middle Ages, Raclette is still produced with milk from cows that are fed fresh grass in the summer and meadow hay in the winter.
The classic Raclette meal includes fresh apple slices, sliced baguette, roasted baby potatoes, cornichon pickles and thinly sliced air dried beef (we use Bresaola). For a fun family dinner or active party idea, try a Raclette dinner . We've got all the fixin's!
