  • Foodie Fridays: Raclette | KristinHarmel.com
    to make it this weekend You can too Raclette according to Wikipedia is a semi firm cow s milk cheese typically aged 3 6 months It s often made in Switzerland or France but I ve also seen American Raclette It s found at some supermarkets in the specialty cheese case but I ve had the most luck finding it consistently at Whole Foods In the traditional Raclette dish the cheese is heated either in front of the fire or in a special Raclette grill or machine and then it s scraped onto your plate In fact the name Raclette comes from the French word racler which means to scrape The cheese is then cut into bite sized pieces and eaten with small boiled potatoes I typically use fingerling potatoes or sliced small red potatoes cornichons French pickles You can also use gherkins and pickled onions I ve read that some people also serve dried meat with the cheese but I ve never had it that way For Christmas this year my lovely mom got me a Boska Holland Mini Raclette Set available on Amazon com for 44 99 or in Kohl s stores on sale for 41 99 I plan to use it this weekend with my boyfriend Jason we ll sit in front of the fire Can you believe we have a fireplace in Central Florida and sip white wine with it just like they do in Switzerland With one of these grills making Raclette couldn t be easier and you can rest assured that you ll be eating a very very traditional winter meal with a beautiful tradition behind it So if you can t make it to the Alps this year this might just be the next best thing Click over to the fabulous David Lebovitz
