About Our Raclette Cheese
What is Raclette?
If you’ve ever seen those mesmerizing food videos of melted cheese being scraped over a plate of food, you’ve seen Raclette cheese in action! The famous Swiss melting cheese is a longstanding culinary tradition that adds ooey-gooey richness to all your favorite foods. The word Raclette means “to scrape,” denoting both the cheese itself and the technique used to serve it. Food lore claims the cheese dates back hundreds of years to the middle ages when Swiss farmers would make their repast by heating a piece of cheese over an open fire. Its evolution into a grillable, scrapable, edible delight took place over the years, eventually becoming the cheese we know and love today!
How to Eat Raclette Cheese
Like Champagne or Roquefort, true Raclette is protected by AOP (Appellation d'Origine Protégée) and is made from the milk of cows who are fed fresh alpine grass in the summer and meadow hay in the winter, resulting in a singularly aromatic and delicious cheese. That said, today excellent versions of the cheese are made all over the world and can be found in fun flavors. Infused with everything from mustard seeds and white wine to Italian truffles you’ll love trying Raclette in all its delicious forms!
While restaurants generally use a specialty grill to melt the cheese, at-home devices allow everyone to soften their own in individual pans. But even a simple non-stick skillet will work for anyone who wants to get the experience at home. Excellent in a wide range of dishes, enjoy this Swiss cheese on everything from burgers and sandwiches to pasta, potatoes, and more!
