Say cheese!

If you don't like cheese then look away now!

Being half French a love of cheese was ingrained in me at a young age.

Some of my fondest childhood memories are of my family ski trips when I was little. In the Easter holidays we use to all take a sleeper train into the mountains, my sister and I loved it. We would all be in the tiniest compartment with 3 bunks one on top of each other. Of course it was always a wrestle for who got top bunk!

Once we reached the snowy mountains and the cold really hit us there was just one meal that was on our minds, raclette.

For what is essentially just melted cheese, cured meats and salad this is one of my all time favourite winter meals and because we love it so much we bought our own raceltte machine. If you can't bring Mohammed to the mountain and all that!

It is the easiest meal in the world, all you have to do is buy a chunky wedge of raclette cheese which you then place between the two heaters and let them do the rest.

Once you see the cheese bubbling it's time to scrape away.

Then pour the cheese over your potatoes. It doesn't get much better than that.

If you're a cheese fan this is the machine for you, it definitely gets a lot of use in my family!
