Winter ideal for Raclette
As the raclette meal was invented in the alpine regions of Switzerland, winter is the ideal time to try raclette. This book will take a novice and make a true expert out of her in all things raclette. Other books on this topic fail by assuming the reader to know about raclette, but The Insider's Guide to the Secret World of Raclette Dining starts at the very beginning. It is the only book on raclette originally written in English (not translated like "the other book" in all three incarnations!) The first part looks at raclette's relationship with fondue and also answers the question why fondue became so famous outside Switzerland while raclette remained a well-kept secret for over 500 years and what the Swiss are doing right now to try to keep it a secret.
The recipe section is full of inspirational recipes that you really want to try. Packed with serving suggestions and which cheeses are ideal for raclette melting. Recipes included: Traditional Raclette, Mini-Hamburgers, Raclette a la Pizza, Camembert with Cranberries, Spinach filled Crepes plus many dessert options. Brilliantly composed with colour photographs for every recipe, the book is the ideal companion to the modern table top Raclette grill. Showcasing the various ways that you can enjoy raclette from the traditional Swiss style to the way the French or the Dutch like to serve it.
In August 2007 Leelanau Cheese Company won the Best of Show Award from the American Cheese Society for their Aged Raclette cheese, recognising it as the best cheese in the USA in 2007. While this fact happened after the book was printed, it contains a lot of other top rated information even experts want to know.
This book is the only book in English that actually contains the traditional raclette recipe itself as well as the modern variations. It does not waste valuable space for drink recipes or fills up the last third with salad recipes (or puts a pumpkin salad on the cover!) like other books on this topic. It is the only book in English offered directly by Amazon and of such high quality that you will not find used or discounted copies.
The book is written, printed, bound and published in Australia by the internationally recognised experts from Raclette Australia.
Get it now for yourself and another for a friend as a great Christmas present!
