Raclette is very popular in Europe, especially in the Swiss Alps and other ski regions, where it’s said Raclette originated.

Back in the old days, Swiss shepherds from the French-speaking Valais region needed to bring food that was relative cheap and wouldn’t spoil easily in the hot summer months up to the Alps.  So they brought cheese and potatoes.  While the potatoes roasted in the fire, a big piece of cheese was put close to the fire.  Once it started melting the cheese was taken away and scraped of the cheese onto the baked potatoes.  This was not only filling and nourishing but also delicious.  In French ‘to scrape’ translates to ‘racler’ and this is where the term Raclette comes from.
