Picture of swiss raclette
The name Raclette means 'scraper' and refers to a group of gourmet cheeses which are melted to make a traditional Swiss dish of the same name. These are mountain cheeses made originally in the Vallais region but are now produced throughout Switzerland. The French also produce a fine Raclette, made from raw milk. The texture of the Raclette is very smooth and it seems to melt in the mouth even without heating. The aroma is strongly reminiscent of the farm with a mixture of fruit and wine aromas. The taste is usually equally strong, with rich wine-like notes, and a tangy accent. The cheese is made with pasteurized part-skim milk and aged over 60 days. A worthy recipient of a 3rd place at the 2012 competition of the American Cheese Society. We have 4 sizes, a half wheel (approx. 6 pounds), a quarter wheel (3 pounds) or individual wedges of 1 pound read more...
