*** ABOUT RACLETTE *** 

You know the weather is starting to get cold  when French persons invite you over for a raclette. Note : Raclette may be Swiss, but France is the land of 1600 kinds of cheese. So  it is no wonder that it has been quickly adopted by the French as a quintessential must. Raclette is a semi-hard type of cheese, traditionally made from non-pasteurized milk. It originated in the Swiss alpine region and today is largely produced in the Auvergne and Savoie regions of France. The cheese by itself is delicious, but it is usually eaten after it is melted and placed on top of potatoes and charcuterie (salt-cured hams). Friends and family gather around the table and individually heat up their trays of cheese, serving themselves (with copious amounts of wine, of course).
