Raclette may be the world's most famous melting cheese, and deservedly so. It's made in the Savoie region of the Alps, in Switzerland and in France. Our French Raclette cheese is made of raw cow's milk and matured for at least 5 months in respect to the French tradition.
It's 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 colored sticky rind. Melted, it tastes creamy and savory, like roast meat and butter. This French gourmet cheese is more aromatic than its Swiss cousin.
It is used to make a dish, which also goes by the name 'raclette', served with boiled potatoes, pickles, and cured meats. The emphasis in Raclette dining is always on sociable eating and drinking.
We cut and wrap this cheese in 4 sizes: approximately 1 pound, 8 ounces, a 1/4 wheel (approximately 3.5 pounds) and 1/2 wheel (approximately 7 pounds).
Ingredients:thermalized cow's milk, salt, lactic starters, microbial rennet, preservatives on the rind: E235 (small amount).
