It's not Christmas season without at least one Raclette party. My more experienced guests look forward to raclette whenever I celebrate a special occasion. My younger guests - the ones that have never had raclette before - look worried at first. But then they realize the joy of grilling their very own choice of veggies and/or meats and then combining all of it with soft, melting, yummy raclette cheese. By the way, any good Swiss cheese will work if you can't get true raclette cheese. FINAL TIP: The particular model (or cost) of a Raclette Grill is not important. Buy what you can afford. They are all GREAT FUN!!
