Due to the Covid-19 crisis, our Raclette affineurs have sadly reduced their production. We recommend trying "Ogleshield" for a very similar, award-winning British cheese alternative. We are supporting our French affineur to make Raclette available to purchase again as soon as possible.
Originally, Raclette was made only in the Swiss canton of Valais. Its production there dates back over 100 years, and the shepherds made it from raw milk in their mountain huts. More recently, however, it became more difficult for the Valais region to meet the increasing demand for the cheese and in consequence, Raclette has become a generic term for a number of similar Swiss and French cheeses made from the mountain pastures. Paxton & Whitfield Raclette is from Savoie and made entirely with raw milk supplied by the farmers of the five communes of the Chambotte Massif, and matured by exceptional affineur Joseph Paccard.Read More
