Swiss Raclette

"An amazingly delicious meal cooked on a raclette, Originally used in the ski lodges after a day of skiing the raclette usually sits on the middle of the table for everyone to use. No! its not a fondue! this has loads of vegetables, and some meat which you cook in small dishes on top of the raclette, usually with some seasonings as well. Once cooked you put a layer of cheese over the top and slide it back under the raclette grill. Once the cheese has melted just serve over a couple of small cooked new potatoes, then you load up and start cooking again… a great social meal with a good glass of wine!"

    Excellent recipe provided by the raclette master herself. I improvised using the oven method as well as making disposable small containers using aluminum foil.


We now reside back in England after returning from Australia after most of our working life there. I have been fortunate enough to have lived in many countries when I was younger and therefore many of my recipes reflect this! Love to cook. love to travel too
