Raclette Party

We had a fun dinner party tonight, the Swiss traditional way...with swiss raclette cheese. You might compare it with an upscale fondue. You use an iron that looks like this.

You put cheese in these little shovels and melt it under the heating element and scrape it out with a wooden spatula to pour over the food option (potatoes, steamed vegetables, bread, and bratwurst)

We also grilled pineapple on the top grill of the iron. It's delicious. Especially if you appreciate good european cheeses. Ben's parents had a bunch of cheese left over from a dinner they did so we decided to throw our own. We borrowed their iron and invited over some friends. I, of course, got caught up in the food making and chatting with friends that I completely forgot to take pictures. Yup. that's me. We had a great time, though!
