Raclette is a semi-hard cow's milk Swiss cheese that is usually fashioned into a wheel of about 6 kg (13 lb). It is most commonly used for melting. It is also a Swiss dish (also popular in France) based on heating the cheese and scraping off the melted part. We also serve this as a meal in the shop and have a Raclette machine for hire. The Raclette is usually served with a steamed potato and along with some cold meats as well.
