Deriving its name from the French verb “racler,” meaning “to scrape,” Raclette is a semi-soft, brine-washed cheese that contains plenty of deep, fruity notes. Its name is rooted in an Alpine lunch tradition, one in which cheesemakers would melt the cut surfaces of Raclette on nearby fire-heated boulders, and then scrape the melted cheese over boiled potatoes and cornichons. Enjoy French Raclette in a modern setting, partnered with some Peppadews or Trois Petits Cochons Cornichons. Note- a half wheel of French Raclette is 4 lbs.
- French Raclette gets its name from the French verb “racler,” meaning to “scrape.”
- The name comes from an Alpine tradition of melting the cut surface of raclette against a piece of hot stone or metal, and then scraping melted cheese over boiled potatoes and cornichons.
- Raclette is a semi-soft cheese made from cow’s milk.
- It’s smooth and supple, with a brine-washed rind.
- It easily melts because of its moisture content, short aging process—after just three to four months it’s considered ripe—as well as its low potential for fat separation when gently heated.
- Raclette-style cheeses are produced beyond the Valais canton, including in France where this particular cheese was made for centuries before formal borders were ever drawn.
