Raclette

© Katherine Stetson

One of the most fun meals you’ll ever enjoy, either as a romantic dinner for two or a grand party for eight!

This is less a recipe and more an ingredient list, the amounts of which are subject to the number of diners.  Select one or more cheeses, one or more meats, several vegetables and fruits, several pickles, relishes and condiments, and a good quality bread.  Provide a cruet of olive oil for drizzling on the grill.

Pre-slice or cube ingredients for ease of cooking and arrange on platters and in small dishes.

You will need a raclette grill for this recipe.
