Raclette, a Swiss melted cheese dish, is popular in nearby countries including Germany where my husband is from. However you do not have to travel to Europe to enjoy it.
Traditionally, Reclette is prepared by heating a large block of cow milk cheese in front of open fire and scrape its melted part. But a modern electric Raclette grill is more practical and convenient for home use.
I bought Boska Holland Mini Raclette Set for two from Amazon. It was about $40.
I love Raclette dinner with some green salad and chilled Riesling!
If only you have a Raclette grill, it is so easy to prepare and so much fun to eat this. I have a small grill set for only two person, but a larger set will support casual, low-key party with friends.
I have this recipe in Japanese recipe, too.
