Snow on the ground, frost in the air…tis the season for raclette and fondue.
Raclette is a simple meal to melt away the winter blues
The term raclette derives from the French word racler, meaning "to scrape”. Traditionally, Swiss cow herders took cheese with them when they were moving their cows to and from alpine pastures. They would place the cheese next to their campfire and when the face of the cheese had reached the perfect degree of meltiness, they would scrape it on top of bread for their evening meal.
These days raclette can be made with an electric raclette maker or table-top grill, or good-ole cast iron skillet.. The cheese is melted, and poured over boiled or steamed potatoes, other vegetables and charcuterie at the table.
Raclette dining is all about relaxed and sociable eating and drinking. The meal is easy to make and meant to be shared.
Fromagio's has the cheese and charcuterie for a superb raclette.
