 Product Description

A semi-hard cheese made from unpasturised cow's milk. Raclette cheese has a distinctive aromatic flavour, brushed brown/orange coloured rind, light-yellow coloured body, fragrant creamy texture, with scattered holes and has an ideal fat and moisture ratio that prevents the cheese from separating when melted.

Apart from the magnificent Swiss Alps themselves, Switzerland's greatest natural resource is the cow. Farmers living in in the Alpine regions take full advantage of the moist alpine pastures with its pure and clean air and move their livestock up the mountains to graze during the summer season. Their prime breed of cattle enjoy grazing on the succulent grasses and in turn provide the country with the rich milk supply that produces high quality cheese. The variety of naturally growing grasses in the upper altitudes contain a higher protein and fat content and are highly nutritious.

Perfect Pairings

The name "raclette" (pronounced ruck-lett in English or rah-klett in its native French) refers to a meal and to a type of cheese with the same name. The traditional dish can be described as melted cheese eaten with boiled (or roasted) potatoes with small gherkins and pickled onions. Modern electrical appliances that are used to make the dish are called Raclette grills. While the method of melting the cheese has changed over time, the raclette meal is quite easy to prepare using the simplest of ingredients and has been a long favourite for festive and fun interactive evenings.
