Product details

Not all Raclettes are born equal. Much like Cheddar, Raclette has been copied so many times, that precious few people have tried the original. Raclette du Valois is everything a true Raclette should be. Ours is made high up in the Swiss mountains at Augstbord Dairy in the village of Turtmann. Milk is collected from the local famers in the Augstbord Co-operative. Their herds graze the land that ranges from 600 metres above sea level at the valley floor, to the slopes below the Turtmann glacier, which sits at a dizzying 3000 metres. The Alpine pasture is strewn with a wide variety of flowers and it is these meadows that provide the perfect raw material for this Raclette. Of course, the cheesemakers’ skill and dedication play no small part in the quality of this cheese too.  

The cheese is named after the French / Swiss dialect word ‘racler’, which means ‘to scrape’;  and it refers to the way that the cheese has always been eaten.  Traditionally, it was cut and held over an open fire until the surface bubbled, at which point it could be scraped with a knife onto a waiting bowl of piping hot potatoes, and eaten alongside local charcuterie, and pickles, such as cornichons.

The fruitiness of the cheese intensifies at it heats and begins to caramelise on the edges. Together with its accompaniments, Raclette makes a delectable fireside picnic.
