Reading Raclette

Reading Raclette cheese, like fondue, is a word that instantly evokes crackling fires, Swiss ski lodges, and snowflakes against the windowpane. Raclette, from the French word “racler”, meaning to scrape, is an alpine cheese that’s used for melting at the table and serving with bread and potatoes, much like a fondue. But instead of a pot, raclette is melted over a hot grill, the melted part scraped of. It’s a winter tradition across Switzerland and France, an informal, friendly gathering around the table to eat and drink.

Reading Raclette is molded after the original Swiss Alps cheese, but made in Vermont with the milk of Jersey cows at Spring Brook Farms. It is smooth and pliable, the pale buttercup yellow paste studded with eyeholes.. The pale yellow cheese has strong flavors of butter, and pronounced nuttiness and a beefiness that is just wonderful when melted like a coat of velvet over potatoes or a rustic loaf of bread, with some cornichons and pickled onions. A fruity white wine will be lovely.

Spring Brook is a traditional farm in Reading, Vermont, with a twist: it partners with the Farms for City Kids Foundation, an organization that hosts urban kids for rural education. The farm produces award-winning cheeses like Tarentaise, an American artisan raw milk version of the Alpine Abodance cheese and Reading, a beautiful version of the famous Raclette. With over 1,000 acres, and a herd of over 100 Jersey cows, this do-good enterprise is definitely top in our books.

Ingredients: Raw milk, culture, enzymes, salt, animal rennet.
Availability: Usually ships within 1 business days. Product is perishable and must ship via Overnight service.
