I Have Tried Raclette That My Parents Brought Back from Switzerland. I


  • There are Raclette machines sold in Switzerland. One appears to be a stand
  • for the half-wheel of cheese and a heating element to melt it. Another
  • looks like a toaster oven with individual trays to melt slices of cheese
  • with other toppings...


am still having trouble finding it in Los Angeles--One store (Trader Joe's). says they normally stock it in the fall.... Lacking both devices, I resorted to gently melting slices of the cheese in a non-stick frying pan and pouring the liquid cheese on the peeled, boiled potatoes. This worked fine and tasted great. I left the original German in case my translation is lacking. RACLETTE Light a good fire. Buy yourself a half wheel of real Raclette cheese, preferably from the Valais (Gosmer, Bagnes, Orsie`res etc.), between three and five months old. Scrape off the rind, top and bottom, so that the cheese can melt more easily. Prepare boiled potatoes in their skins and have a ready supply of gherkins or cornichons, pickled onions and black pepper. When the fire died to a mass of glowing embers, procure yourself a large flat stone and put it before the fire. Set the half cheese on top, its cut surface exposed to the heat. Nearby have a supply of plates. As the cheese melts, scrape it off on to a plate and serve it at once. Continue this way until everyone is full. --------------------------------------- RACLETTES Sicher sind die Kuhhirten der Schweizer Alpen, vor allem des Wallis, diejenigen, die als erste die Vorla"ufer der heutigen Raclette ausprobiert haben. Vor dem Holzfeuer sitzend, hielten sie mit einer langen eisernen Gabel Ka"sestu"cke u"ber die Flammen. Dieser von allen Seiten gebra"unte und butterweiche, geschmolzene Ka"se wurde auf Brotschnitten gestrichen. Spa"ter taucht die Raclette dann in Restaurants auf, nachdem sie sich etwas weiterentwickhelt hat. Man stellt einen halben Ka"selaib vors Feuer, der aufgeschnittene Teil dem Feuer zugewandt. Sobald die Oberfla"che schmilzt, schabt man (schaben = racler, daher der Name) den geschmolzenen Teil auf einen heisser Teller. Man tra"gt sofort auf und reich dazu ungescha"lte Kartoffeln, Gewu"rzgurken und kleine Zweibeln. Heute gibt es elektrische Raclette-Apparate, mit denen man die Raclette am Tisch zubereiten kann. Dabei ist jedem Gast die Wahl der aufgetischen Beilagen u"berlassen. Auch fa"llt dabei die Wartezeit, der Nachteil der traditionellen Methode, weg. The cowboys in the Wallis region are thought to be the first to prepare raclette. Sitting before a hot fire thay held the cheese over the flame with a long iron fork. The cheese browned and became as soft as butter inside. This cheese was served on bread slices. Later raclette appeared in restaurants, where it wwas further developed. The wheel of cheese was cut in half and the cut edge was placed close to a hot fire. As the cheese melts the soft part is scraped off and placed on a plate and immediately served. (the name raclette comes from racler which means to scrape.) It was served with boiled unpeeled potatoes, pickles and small onions. Today, electric raclette machines are available, where raclette is prepared on the table. that way each guest can choose what he or she would like to add. That cuts the waiting time down, which is a disadvantage with the traditional method. ---------------------------------------------------- Raclette 1 (mit dem traditionellen Raclette-Apparat) (with a traditional Raclette apparatus) ---------------------------------------------------- * $$ 20 min Pro Person: per person: 150 g Raclette-Ka"se 150 g raclette 3 bis 4 Kartoffeln 3 to 4 potatoes 2 Tomaten 2 tomatoes Knoblauch garlic Oliveno"l olive oil Petersilie parsley Basilikum basil Salz salt Pfeffer pepper Die Kartoffeln mit der Schale kochen.
