What must never be lacking in food are potatoes (preferably jacket potatoes), Raclette cheese for browning, Herb butter and fresh baguette.

For the raclette cheese is true: He should melt well and aromatic. Typical raclette cheeses from Switzerland about Bagnes, Orsières or Goms. You can get them at the cheese counter. A rule of thumb: the longer the aging period, the more aromatic of raclette cheese.

Thus, the raclette works

The grill plate is usually on top in the middle of the table, the potatoes. If you like meat, also may contain small Fillet pieces (beef, pork or chicken) roasting in the raclette plate. Also shrimp or fish fillet, such as salmon go well with raclette. Around then lined up bowls of side dishes.
