When you like melted cheese, like in fondue or grilled cheese, chances are that you'll like a Raclette cheese as well. Reading Raclette is made by Spring Brook Farm and is an American artisanal version of the famous Alpine melter Raclette which means to scrape.
Reading Raclette is made with Jersey milk from partner farms in nearby Vermont towns. It is a semi-firm wheel of raw cow's milk cheese that is washed with saltwater brine as is matured for about 3-4 months.
Reading has a creamy, nutty flavor, which is sometimes almost floral or grassy with a pleasing, long-lasting complexity. It is a melt-in-your-mouth cheese, a wonderful melter, and is an ideal cheese to serve when you're craving fondue, grilled cheese, and other melted cheese recipes.
It is an Alpine table cheese that pair well with all kinds of condiments. Try to scrape the cheese atop a plate of fingerling potatoes.
We hand-cut and wrap this cheese in wedges of 8 ounces and 1 pound and you can purchase and quarter wheel of 5 pounds.
Please note that quarter wheels may vary slightly in total weight, you will be charged for the actual weight of the wheel that you will receive.
