Swiss raclette

One of the favorite Swiss national dishes is a special creamy cheese that is melted under a red hot heater
(or in front of a wood fire) and grated on top of boiled small potatoes. Add a few pickled cucumbers (gerkins) and pickled onions and a generous amount of
white wine (usually Fendant from Valais/Wallis) and you have a wonderful evening with friends! This shot was taken in Southern California actually,
at the Swiss Park in Whittier on the occasion of the August 1st National Day for Switzerland.


other sizes: small medium original

Damn; I've just come back from a flying visit to Switzerland and never saw this stuff, (never heard of it before!). Another excuse to go back next year ;-)

Certainly sounds delicious - I'll have to try the Swiss Park one of these days!

Heureusement que tu as écrit que cette photo a été prise dans le sud de la Californie car je me serais crue dans un chalet suisse :--) Humm, que c'est bon.
