Raclette is a cows’ milk cheese that has a light-brown rind and a semi-firm texture.
Although the cheese has a pleasant enough flavor, it is not special until it is heated in front of a fire or under a hot grill. The full nutty, sweet and slightly fruity aroma intensifies and the elasticity of the melting cheese makes it truly magnificent.
It is used in a potato dish called raclette; the name is derived from the French verb racler (to scrape)
Although it’s clearly not a British cheese, we’ve been asked so many times to list it we couldn’t refuse !
We do stock Ogleshield which is a fantastic British version here.
This is traditional French raclette of a very high quality and melts fantastically.
