French Raclette is the world’s most famous melting cheese. Raclette has a semi-soft interior dotted with small holes, and a rosy, inedible rind. Eaten as a table cheese, Raclette has a smooth, creamy taste that is neither too salty nor sharp.
However, our French Raclette tends to have a strong, pungent aroma that is not for the timid. This cheese is traditionally melted (a half wheel is placed in a fireplace, then the melted top surface is continuously scraped off) and layered atop boiled potatoes, pickles, fresh vegetables, and sliced meats.
A white wine is a great choice to pair with Raclette. A Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling or Pinot Grigio would all work well. You could also serve a light wheat ale or a fruity Pinot Noir for red wine lovers.
