Travel Series #2-Switzerland-Part 3

Hi everyone! 

For today's final part of the Travel Series that took us to Switzerland I decided to give it a twist. I will be talking about something that is traditionally Swiss and that I did while I was in Switzerland however today's topic relates to food 😄

I am going to talk to you about Raclette. The term 'raclette' means 'to scrape' which is actually what you do once the cheese is melted. 

Traditionally the melting happens in front of an open fire with the big piece of cheese facing the heat. One then regularly scrapes off the melting side. It is accompanied by small firm potatoes. Furthermore, everyone will then choose side dishes to go with it whether it is meat, gherkins, corn, pickled onions or sun-dried tomatoes. 
A modern way of serving raclette involves an electric table-top grill with small pans, in which to melt slices of raclette cheese. Generally, the grill is surmounted by a hot plate or griddle.

My aunt and cousin prepared this lovely table for our dinner. Typical cheese that we tasted were Emmenthal and Gruyere.

This was absolutely amazing and so delicious!! I suggest you go and try this meal if you're ever in Switzerland and find a restaurant that offers this or better to attend certain festivals that offer raclette on their stands. You won't be disappointed I can assure you 😉

With love,
