Pictures of our Winter Friday Lunch…

By | January 9, 2009

We had Raclette for lunch today 😀

When we were in Switzerland this winter, we brought back the makings for this yummy warm wintery lunch…

1- Sliced Raclette Cheese and 2- Raclette Oven

What is a Raclette?

It is a kind of swiss cheese, its is the 2nd famous dish after Swiss Fondue. It is usually served with some boiled baby potatoe, little pickled onions and pickled gherkins. I always order a bread basket and a green salad on the side with it. Some variations include having mushrooms or pickled baby corn, some have sausages they girll on the top of the oven while the cheese is being melted…

It is a very good fullfilling meal, and while you eat it you imagine ur self in Europe, you momentarely forget ur in Kuwait and you know it has been worth every kd paid for the extra weight in the airport …

So let me show you what did we eat today 😀

Another way to eat is to slide the cheese on top of your bread, like Heidi's grandad does

Then top with fresh greens to make an open face sandwich :D

Or arrange the veggies first on the bread, then seal the sandwich by pouring the cheese on top
