French Raclette is a cheese with a light brown colour. Served cold, it is characterised by a mild aroma and flavour that gently tingles the taste buds. The semi-hard, slightly melting texture is easy to cut into thicker slices. Served hot, it will almost magically changes its flavour to a more savoury and distinctive taste. Its aroma becomes sweet and slightly fruity. Raclette is, above all, the main ingredient of the dish of the same name – Raclette.
You will also enjoy it as an ingredient in casseroles, where it will melt and release even more of the flavour. If you add it to a filling with meat or vegetables such as Portobello mushrooms or coloured peppers, the dish becomes creamy and slightly spicy.
Its flavour will be complemented by a dry white wine. Of course, French will be the best.
