The Baechler family is a Swiss family that moved to France and have been making cheeses since 1860. Raclette is a semi-hard cheese made on both sides of the French and Swiss Alps. The name Raclette comes from the French word "racler" which means "to scrape". This particiular raclette has a delicious fruity smell, but once it is cooked, you get the beautiful gooey texture with a subtle truffle taste. BEWARE, the Baechler raclettes will have you fighting your friends for the rind! It is to die for!
