If you have never eaten Raclette cheese, then you should taste it here like the two VTers MATIM and VonDutch did.

Raclette is a special cheese that easily melts without separating itself into grease and other bits. As you can see on the photo no. 2 it is melted under a special heater and then the melted layer is scraped onto a plate with potato and gherkin. If you like you can sprinkle additional seasoning on your raclette like pepper or paprika powder.

You can taste it at the farmers market for CHF 3.50 (in July 07 - it's a bargain!) or in a restaurant.
