Keeping everything simple is the secret of a great Raclette meal. If
you haven't experienced raclette before you may certainly be curious
about all the fuss. You will re-discover how simple foods are often
the best and that some foods that you thought were fairly ordinary
will be seen in a different light. There is great joy in the way
you eat and and the means how you cook. You can also use your raclette
grill to reheat cold meat and to reheat meals such as leftovers.
Setting the table: Set the table up with all the ingredients all
pre-cut and sliced. Place the grill in the middle and turn it on to preheat
while everyone takes their seat. If you don't have much room on your dinning
table, keep half the ingredients in the kitchen or on a near by table
and top up the ingredients when they run low.
At the grill: Take a slice of cheese and place onto a pan and
place under the grill to melt. In the meantime take a hot potato from
the top of the grill and cut it into small pieces with your knife. Take
the pan with the melted cheese and give it a shake to loosen the cheese
and pour over your potato. Grind some pepper over it and let stand for
a short moment (because it can be very hot) while you prepare the next
pan with some more cheese and another combination of toppings and place
it back under grill to allow to melt while you are eating. In the meantime
enjoy the company you have, sip your favourite drink or nibble on the
array of food on the table.
Scraping cheese out of pan: The pans are usually non-stick
and your melted creation will normal slide out after a little shake
but if the cheese you are using gets stuck scrape it out with wooden
raclette spatulas that are included with good raclette grills.
Or you can use a piece of bread.
Beverage serving suggestions:
Traditionally raclette is served with a dry white wine known as
Fendant (Swiss wine) or black tea which are both known to help aid
in the digestion of cheese.
