Raclette Smoked is a Swiss mountain cheese that is smoked after making using a wood fire, capsulated in a brushed rind. The smoking gives the raclette a delicate smoky flavour. Delicious when cooked on a raclette machine. Can be served the same way raclette is traditionally served: hot and melted over new potatoes. A world-famous cheese with a twist.
To call Raclette a cheese is a total understatement, it’s a Swiss national dish! Dishes of melted cheese were mentioned in medieval texts from Swiss convents as early as 1291. The melted cheese was originally consumed by peasants in the mountainous Alpine regions of the cantons of Valais and Fribourg (Switzerland), and Savoie and Haute-Savoie (France). Traditionally, cow herders carried cheese with them when they were moving cows to or from pastures up in the mountains. In the evening, the cheese would be placed next to a campfire for softening, then scraped onto bread.
Please note all cheeses are hand-cut, therefore the weights listed are approximate. We work very hard to cut them as accurately as we can!
