Cheese Fondue and Raclette

Two traditional Swiss dishes from the Swiss Alps and Jura mountain areas.

Cheese Fondue /fɔ̃dy/ is a traditional Swiss dish of melted cheese served in communal pot (caquelon or fondue pot) over a portable stove. The dish was popularized in the mid-1900's with it's origins pointing to Canton Fribourg or Neuchâtel a few hundred years ago. Cheese Fondue consists of 1 or 2 or more regional cheeses, the most popular being the "moitié-moitié" (half-half in french) with a mix of Gruyère and Vacherin. Another popular mix consists of Gruyère and Emmental.

Raclette /rəˈklɛt/, a distinctive semi-hard cow milk cheese with origins in the Swiss Alps (Valais), has a history that goes back to medieval times. Raclette is also the name of the popular dish based on heating the Raclette cheese and scrapping it off the melted part.
