TRADITIONAL BERN DISH: RACLETTE
Swiss cuisine is often associated with cheeses and in particular, Emmental, Gruyere, Vacherin, and Appenzeller, all of which form an essential part of the famous raclette and fondues. Raclette is a dish originating from the canton of Valais in Switzerland. Raclette consists of eating the melted cheese of the same name, accompanying sausages, meats, pickles, and boiled potatoes. In the past, Swiss shepherds melted the cheese by bringing the form closer to the fire, where they also roasted the potatoes. Then when the cheese on the surface was melted, they scraped it with an iron instrument and spread it on the potatoes and some sausage. The name of the dish derives from this way of preparation: it comes from the French verb racler, which means to scratch.
Today, electrical appliances are used for their preparation. In addition to cheese, the traditional ingredients for raclette are roasted or boiled potatoes whole and with skin, sausages, meat cut into strips, and ham. But since cooking is also an innovation, it is very common to add vegetables to cook on the grill or on skewers: peppers, asparagus, courgette, aubergines, onions, tomatoes, etc. In Switzerland, the dish is accompanied by hot drinks such as tea, or a light white wine.
But of course, the fundamental ingredient is the raclette cheese that we will buy at the local market. Raclette is a semi-hard, extra-fat cheese made with raw cow’s milk. Legend has it that it was a viticulturist named León who invented the dish on a cold winter night, although written sources certify this custom as far back as the 16th century.

salt to taste
Cook the potatoes in boiling salted water, cut them in half and leave them aside on a plate. We cut the vegetables raw and put them on a tray, as well as the fresh bread.
We are going to use a special device that is electrical, rectangular, square, or round devices, in which small individual trays are inserted where portions of cheese are placed. We grease it with very little oil so that it doesn’t stick. The heat produced inside melts the cheese, allowing each diner to help themselves to their liking as they go. They usually have a griddle, grill, or stone on top to cook other foods such as vegetables or toast bread.
serve as a garnish, the raw vegetables, the pickled gherkins and onions, and the ham and at the end put the freshly ground black pepper to taste.
Everyone serves the cheese in the vegetables, bread, or potato to their preference which makes it a very entertaining meal to share a delicious moment with family or friends!!!
