Fondue means melted in French. Melted cheese with white wine and kirsch is a classic Swiss dish that has been around since 1699. There are various cheeses that can be used in the classic recipe, yet all are based around Swiss Alpine cheese, with usually a good amount of Gruyere (from the town of Gruyere in the Swiss Alps). We will be doing a style of Fondue called Moitié-Moitié (meaning half and half) with a mix of half Gruyere and half from another alpine cheese called Vacherin Fribourgeois. The cheeses are melted in a traditional pot and held over heat for communal dipping with bread.
Raclette is both the name of a type of Alpine cheese that comes from both France and Switzerland and is also the name of a dish in which the cheese is served melted over potatoes. Traditionally, an entire half wheel of cheese was melted next to a fire and scraped onto a plate. More modern machines take the half wheel and put it under a broiler with the same effect. The cheese begins to melt and becomes bubbly and crispy. It is then scraped over boiled potatoes and served with traditional charcuterie (Viande Séchée is dried beef), cornichons and a light salad.
