Raclette originates from the Swiss canton of wallis, where sheepherders traditionally used to ‘pass the summer’ high in the mountains. These herders brought hard cheese with them which they melted over an open fire and drizzled onto pieces of bread. Raclette was born. The result was a simple, warm meal that could be easily shared. The name raclette is derived from the french word “racler” which means “to scrape”. A raclette set of Boska is also available in smaller forms. This form over raclette makes it possible to heat (pieces) raclette cheese in a pan. For warming this cheese in a pan, you have to slice the cheese in slices. By putting the slicer in a pan of a small raclette set you will get easily melted raclette cheese. In the Middle Ages raclette cheese was eaten. It was at that time known as a particularly nutritious meal, which was mostly eaten by farmers in the mountainous part of Switserland.
