The name comes from the French word meaning ‘to scrape’.
This Swiss semi-hard cheese has a slightly rubbery texture with a sweet “peach” flavour which is stronger when melted.
Traditionally a half head of Raclette is placed in front of an open fire and melted.
The melted cheese is scraped off and served over new potatoes with gherkins and small white pickled onions.
