Spicy Raclette de Savoie is a brushed rinded French semi-hard cheese from the Alps and made with cow’s milk. It has a medium-strong taste thanks to the spice.
Raclette is an unpasteurised brown cheese, with a leathery washed rind.
It is delicious when cooked on a raclette machine, as it is served hot to eat it, melting as per tradition over potatoes and charcuterie, cornichon, and salads. It is a rich cheese and usually associated with the winter ski season.
