The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
Raclette cheese smells funny. It’s got a powerful aroma that you could be un complimentary about.
But then again.
It makes a great way to share food with people. It’s similar to the cook your own dinner that I wrote about.
What is raclette?
It’s a cheese from Switzerland. I first had a raclette experience as a teenager in Germany in the eighties.
When you get together for a meal with this food, it involves a raclette grill. The grill has individual pans for cooking at the table and a large grill plate above the heating element.
There are many ways to serve the food but we have the following:
-cooked potato slices
-finely chopped raw shallots
-various chopped raw vegetables including mushrooms, tomato, bell peppers, asparagus spears, courgettes
All of these are preped in advance and put out on the table.
Then each person starts cooking.
The grill is great for the asparagus and courgettes.
The cheese bubbles and it’s ready.
