Cheese-makers comments

Sometimes smelly and sometimes bland… But wait until you melt Klein River Raclette! Raclette comes from the French word, racler, which means “to scrape”.

Once the cheese hits the heat, scrape onto your favourite dish! Fruity, sweet, earthy and a touch of salt comes through and accompanies any dish. Works wonderfully in a traditional fondue or the closer-to-home South African favourite: braaibroodjie.

The curd washing process ensures creaminess and a low lactose content. Raclette, interestingly, uses cultures that is also used in the production of blue cheeses.

Klein River Cheese is the only producer of Raclette in South Africa. Light that fire… we’ll bring the Raclette!
