Yet another reason to love Switzerland -- raclette. While most Americans have heard of fondue, even if they've never eaten it, raclette remains something of an unknown.
Traditionally a large wheel of cheese was set near the fireplace, and as the top layer turned soft and bubbly it was scraped off -- raclette is French for squeegee -- onto a plate of new potatoes that have been boiled and sliced, with the addition of pearl onions, mini gherkins, and maybe some corn.
This isn't the best example of what raclette is supposed to look like. But it was yummy.
Just one of the many reasons I love Switzerland.
