Raclette is a semi-soft cheese made on both sides of the French and Swiss Alps.
This cheese has a thin, brownish-orange coloured rind and a pale yellow pate with a few scattered open holes. It has a distinctive pleasant, aromatic smell with a creamy texture. The flavour can vary from nutty, to slightly acidic, to milky.
The name Raclette comes from the French word ‘racler’, which means ‘to scrape’. It isalso the name of a Swiss dish, where the cheese is melted in front of a fire or a special machine. The melted sections are then scraped onto diner’s plates, and served with small potatoes, gherkins, pickled onions and charcuteries.
Please note: Because our cheeses are cut by hand exact weights may vary slightly.
