Raclette is a wonderful melting cheese; and one of the cheeses that many people know when they think about Swiss cheese. Raclette means 'scraper' and refers the traditional Swiss dish with the same name.
The texture of the Raclette cheese is very smooth, the aroma is characteristic of an alpine cheese and the taste is mild with a herbal, fruity tone. A gourmet cheese that works wonders when melted over vegetables or potatoes, your burger. It is worth trying to eat the cheese in the traditional way - just melted - the cheese becomes your 'meat' part of the meal. Serve it, like the Swiss do, with boiled potatoes and cornichons.
The cheese is made with pasteurized part-skim milk and aged over 60 days. We cut and wrap the cheese in 3 sizes, a half wheel (approximately 6 pounds), a quarter wheel (approximately 3 pounds) or individual wedges of 1 pound and 8 ounces.
NOTE: We'll weigh each quarter and half wheel before shipping. Because of the variation in the size/weight of the cheese, we'll charge your credit card according to the weight that will be shipped to you.
This item is perishable and will require an insulated shipping container and freeze packs and must ship by shipping methods taking a maximum of two days.
