My parents recently traveled to Geneva and brought back a piece of Raclette cheese. "Raclette" is derived from the French word "racler" which means "to scrape off". This is true winter/mountain food from the Alps and the cheese is traditionally cut in half, melted in front of the fire and layers are scaped off as they start to bubble. The cheese is eaten with boiled potatoes and pickles. We also had some dried meats with it. As we don't possess a traditional raclette setup, we used this. hmmmmmm cheesyness is wonderful but very very filling.....I'm so stuffed!!!
