TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
The Bellevaire Raclette Party Grill is for pre-order. It will come via sea shipment, and the earliest arrival will be in September. And isn’t that just perfect timing? “Ber” months in Manila are known for being chilly, with temperatures dropping the closer it gets to the Christmas season.
Get a Raclette Party Grill to prepare for the “ber” months. It comes with a heated grill and two skillets/plates, and spatulas. It’s easy to use, easy to store, and will give you that added layer of fun to your long-awaited gatherings.
PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
The traditional Swiss Raclette is easy and delicious. Make sure you’re using the freshest and best ingredients to get the most out of the experience.
Wash and boil some sliced potatoes with skin on. Once cooked, place the potatoes onto a plate for each person, along with some pickled onions. Put raclette cheese onto the plate/skillet, then melt under the grill. Once melted, scrape the cheese onto the potatoes. Grind some fresh pepper on top, and enjoy with some dried meats like prosciutto and parma ham, and some slices of baguette. Serve with a white wine, like a Roussette or Chablis.
A SNOWY TRADITION
A winter cheese, there is good reason Raclette is popular in the Swiss Alps, and other ski regions. Way back, shepherds would move their cows to and from pastures, up and down the mountains. They needed the food they brought with them to be relatively cheap and not easily spoiled.
They brought cheese and potatoes. While they roasted the potatoes over the fire, a big piece of the cheese would be placed near the heat, and it would start to melt. They would then scrape that melted cheese onto their potatoes. It was a simple, cheap meal that was filling, nourishing, and completely delicious.
Make sure your Raclette Party Grill is unplugged prior to cleaning. Wipe it down with a damp cloth (do not submerge in water!). Wash the grill, dishes, and spatulas in warm water, with a mild detergent. Do not use steel wool or any other abrasive cleaners. Dry immediately, and store in a dry area, like a cupboard.
