raclette -

Raclette is a cheese that comes from Wallis in Switzerland and Savoie in France and is made from pasteurized cow's milk. The name of this cheese comes from the word "racler" which in French means "scraping" or "chirping".

In the Middle Ages, Swiss shepherds were pleased with the spicy Raclette cheese. They also like to heat half the cheese with fire and choke the cheese that has been heated. Cheese is often eaten together with boiled potatoes.

Because it can melt well then Raclette cheese can be used for toast, souffle and grilled meat. When the cheese is roasted then the cheese becomes crunchy and tasty.
