    Yep. You need cheese, usually there's a raclette cheese but you can use others like bleue cheese to add some variety and flavors.

    Get cold cuts, potatoes and some pickles and onions.

    Put a slice of cheese (or a mix of cheese if you have different kinds) in one of the raclette dish to melt it.

    In the meantime prepare a stack of cold cuts (prosciutto, salami, mortadella, etc...), add a piece of potato on top with an onion and pickle. When the cheese is almost boiling pour over the stack of goodies you just prepared and then enjoy. :)

    That's what we had for dinner last Monday evening at a friend's place. Always a popular meal. But it's a winter meal as it's quite heavy. :p

    If you have the chance and go to Europe make sure to stop at a Raclette restaurant to enjoy it the way it should:

    ^^^Great advice.

    Based on experience from the raclette I have tried, it's all about using high quality cheese.

    Had one when I lived in Germany, loved it. Its kind of like fondue, everyone does their own thing, and you drink whilst you cook, so its a win/win :busted:

    Why is that weak? Have you ever had Raclette? There is nothing new age or hippy about it. Its good food plain and simple.
