Raclette cheese was invented in the Middle Ages by shepherds, who consumed it mainly outdoors in the summertime when they were grazing cows. At that time, there was talk of "grilled cheese": they placed half of a wheel of cheese in front of a fire and scraped the melted cheese to spread on bread and potatoes. This is how the name of raclette appeared (racler – to scrape), in reference to the action of scraping the melted surface of the cheese.
This is a cheese with a smooth and creamy texture that you cannot help tasting by itself. Not to mention that when warm, it melts evenly without burning. The Raclette de Savoie PGI is so tasty because it is made from raw milk, rich from the nutrients of the land, and is also locally and traditionally crafted. Under its orange rind, the cheese is supple and ivory yellow in color. It has a frank, balanced and very fragrant taste, and is ideal for melting.
Not only does Raclette de Savoie PGI have an invitation to the cheese party platter, but it also great for countless recipes. Perfectly melting evenly, this cheese likes to be to browned. It also releases little fat and has remarkable stretch. Unleash your culinary imagination for creation! Enjoy your Raclette de Savoie PGI accompanied by a dry, white wine: Roussette de Savoie, Roussette du Bugey, Chautagne blanc, Chignin Bergeron. For those who prefer red wines, we recommend Gamay or Mondeuse.
