Everyone will want to dip into this classic cheese fondue. It's made with 3 Swiss cheeses (raclette, Emmental, and Gruyere), and is rich, gooey, and delicious. We use cubed French bread and pickled vegetables for dipping.

I love hard/aged/sharp cheeses, but the Raclette was too disgusting. (It permeated the entire house) In the future, I would try it again with NOT getting the Raclette and increasing the amounts of the other two cheeses to compensate.

This was my first experience with Raclette, so I don't know if mine was bad or if that's how it is supposed to be, but the Raclette smelled like rotting sewage/animal
