Raclette cheese may be the world's most famous melting cheese, and it is made in the Savoie region of the Alps, in Switzerland and in France. Our French raclette cheese is made of cow's milk and matured for at least 5 months in respect of the French cheese tradition. It is during this long ripening period that the flavor and excellent melting qualities develop. French Raclette has a semi-soft interior dotted with small holes and a rosy sticky rind. Melted, it tastes creamy and fruity. This French gourmet cheese is a little more aromatic than its Swiss cousin.
It is used to make a dish, which also goes by the name 'raclette', or served with boiled potatoes, pickles, and cured meats. The accent in Raclette dining is always on sociable eating and drinking.
