The tabletop raclette is the perfect device to grill veggies, seafood or meat while simultaneously melting cheese. People cook their own portions and eat at their own pace. You can stretch out the festivities for hours... and that's exactly what we did did!
A group of us gathered to test out the tabletop grill, tasting asparagus, kielbossa, potatoes, and of course... cheese. These are some of my favourites and the flavours seemed to deepen when they were slowly melted:
- Le Marechal
- Smoked Applewood Cheddar
- Extra Aged Comte
- Etorki Basque (Sheep's Milk)
The following wines were satisfying accompaniments:
The red on hand was Bodega Volcanes Tectonia Pinot Noir 2012 (Chile), which was better paired with the more flavourful cheeses and kielbossa.
