Another great recipe ***** No problem finding Raclette as it is readily available in my local Tesco in Scotland. The calories did worry me a little but who cares it was delicious Jan

I make with gruyere - think it has more flavour. Although youy don't taste the wine as such, I have made it with and without and fin it superior with. The wine cuts the richness of the cheese and cream. A favourite!

I have made this a number of times but never with Raclette as I can't find it in the UK, lots available in the French Alps though! Used gruyére instead. I did add the wine but agree you don't notice it's there.

I've made this about three times so far. My kids love it! I don't add the wine (can't see the point, would you be able to taste it anyway?). I use any potatoes (not new tho'), bacon lardons, and emantaal cheese.
