About this item

Raclette de Savoie is an ancient mountain cheese common to the Savoie region in France and the canton of Valais in Switzerland. It derives its name from racler, meaning to scrape, which describes the way the local people cut this cheese.

Raclette is a semi-soft cow cheese, unpasteurized, with a dark-beige slightly sticky rind and a light yellow paste. It has a pleasant flavor but it gets particularly tasty when heated in front of a fire or under a hot grill and only then the full aroma intensifies.

The rich and nutty aroma of the cheese is the perfect partner for the potatoes but it also pairs up well with cooked and cured meat. Today, the traditional dish can be created by heating slices of cheese under the grill and served with tea like in Valais or with white wine such as the traditional Vin de Savoie.
