Reading Raclette’s Taste

This raw cow cheese is sweet and salty, almost jam-my with a subtle finish of funk. Elastic and just toothsome paste melts like a dreams. Considered un-fussy and stands up to its Old-World Ancestors. The bloomy rind gives way to a bouncy and delightful cheese.

Serving Reading Raclette

The word “raclette” is derived from the French “racier,” or “to scrape”. Traditionally a cheese herdsmen made for themselves and not for market. By the evening fire, after allowing it to melt inside its rind, the melted, gooey cheese was scraped over hot potatoes or any other hearty winter vegetables. It’s the perfect cheese for a communal meal. Gather with a half wheel and assorted tubers and greens and a dinner of hot scraped cheese is served!
