Raclette Party Tips
If you only
have a small dining table and need more place for the raclette
grill and all the other ingredients, you can try elevating the
raclette grill onto a mini table to enable you to use the area underneath
your raclette grill. Or get a smaller raclette grill such as our
model The Petite.
If you are
organising a large group function and need helping hands or need
to cut costs, you can ask guests to bring one/some of the accompanying
ingredients e.g.. a jar of olives, capsicums, can of pineapple
or wine. As there is no precooking required, this wouldn't be
too much trouble to ask anyone.
To ensure everyone
gets their fair share of cheese and other ingredients, you can choose
to allocate a plate with a selection of all the ingredients to each
person or to share between two. This also makes all the ingredients
at only arms length away and reduces the need to pass various dishes
around the table.
For those who
are lactose intolerant or can't eat cheese because of dietary restrictions
there is what's known as non dairy cheese on the market based on
soy beans - it's called "mini col" available from your
supermarket. So you don't have to miss out if this applies to you.
Actually, raclette cheese contains only a small amount of lactose
because of the way it is made.
Aside of Ferndale
Raclette Cheese in New Zealand and Heidi
Farm Raclette Cheese in Australia there are plenty of other
great cheeses available at your supermarket suitable for cooking:e.g.
Swiss Gold , Gruyere , Emmental , Jarlsberg , Mozzarella , Mature
The top hot
plate of your grill can be used for meat, sausages and vegetables.
This is best utilised outdoors e.g. on the balcony as the cooking
fumes from the meat can disperse more freely outside rather than
in your dining room. It is also best to wait until the end of the
meal as using the barbecue plates can create fumes.
from your dinner can be easily be used for pizza topping or adding
to pasta sauce the next day. Pre-made bases from the supermarket
make for a quick and easy snack.
