The grill.Behind it was the apron that i mentioned inthe previous post. Just as backdrop:pIndeed we shopped en masse yesterday. Mostly on necessities though. Our kitchen had run out of supplies. Chere's printer was running out of cartridge too and hence need a new one.Plus,by purchasing Raclette grill, it obligated us to buy the raclette 'food' as well.the cheese particularly is not that cheap. sigh. We decided for a simple raclette meal in the end.
Raclette is both a cheese, and a grilled dish served with the raclette cheese. Both are called raclette. Raclette -as stated in the grill's manual book- originates from Switzerland.But is so equally famous in France that you would think it is French's by origin. I think it would be just as fair to call it a French cuisine too though. it is not important what you choose to grill as long as you have the cheese heated in the coupelles underneath the grill. it can vary from vegies like tomatoes to meat slices to seafoods . traditionally, it is usualy accompanied by steamed or boiled potatoes as well. Of course baguette is no alien too :) .
The coupellesOur package of raclette last night consists of chicken and beef salami, a platter of boiled potatoes, and a baguette. i wanted to add meat slices to our meal but cheri reminded me we had already had our dinner earlier. a dozen slices of salami would do for the night. allright.
the raclette cheese is a bit smelly but you'll forget about it once you have tasted it. As a matter of fact i smelled nothing when it has melted. I have to say this, SEDAP GILE; hehe
