It’s that time of year again, no matter what is going on cold weather season calls for Raclette! The French are crazy about their Raclette which is a semi-hard cheese usually fashioned into a wheel of about 6 kg (13 lb). Made of Alpine raw cow milk it is most commonly used for melting, but can also be consumed in thin slices on your cheese tray. You can find Raclette cheese as a seasonal items in your favorite US stores such as Trader Joe’s or Costco or even order it right here! Of course , Raclette is also known as a Swiss dish and very popular in Savoie (France). Raclette comes the French “racler” which means to scrape off the melted cheese.
