Montanella Raclette Cheese (former Grand Cru), 2/1.75 lb
Montanella Raclette (formerly sold under the name of Grand Cru Raclette), 2 blocks of 1.75 lb (Total of approximately 3.5 lb). This cheese is made by cheesemakers trained in time-honored techniques that date back to the twelfth century. Handcrafted in small batches and cured in curing cellars, this washed rind cheese has a velvety, semi-soft body and a nutty, yeasty finish. This sensational melting cheese is a must for any authentic raclette dinner. One block is about the right amount of cheese for a raclette party of 4-5 people. The left over piece can be stored in the refrigerator for 6 months or frozen to keep even longer, or be used for other delicious recipes that ask for melting cheese.
Good news for vegetarians: This cheese is made with microbial rennet! Half wheels are available on request.
The cheese will usually ship with UPS ground or US priority mail from WI the following Monday or Tuesday after placing the order. We will contact you if we feel that we can't guarantee the freshness of the cheese by ground shipment. To avoid expedited shipping charges we ship the cheese on ice. Please allow for a fee of $4.00 to cover the cost of ice and foil.
If you need to get the order for a certain date, please check with us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 605 332 5572.
We cannot provide gift wrapping for cheese, since we don't ship the cheese ourselves.
The Cheese arrived very quickly, thank you Sonja! It was easy to cut and fit perfectly in the melting pans. However, to me, the taste was very bland :-( I am from Switzerland and grew up eating MANY Raclette's . This one just was not for me. Also, next time I will make sure that I order one with the rind still on it, my mistake. The Customer service was GREAT, thank you Sonja !
Thank you for taking the time to send me your honest opinion. Much appreciated!
Just like Switzerland’s
We lived in Switzerland for 3 years and fell in love with Raclette! The Montanella brings back those memories. It was excellent and our guests absolutely loved it. We have new Raclette converts! It came nicely packed and delivered in just a few days. I’m glad to know I can get the ‘real’ thing here in the US.
Thank you fro taking the time to write a review!
Love this cheese
Love this cheese; the square format fits in our melter really well.
I was impressed with the Montanella. I am familiar with the SwissRaclette. I would highly recommend the sampler. As I mentioned, I wasreally impressed with the Montanella.
This is the first time I have used a domestic cheese for Raclette and I was very pleased with the flavor and aroma. It will be difficult not to select the Montanella for my next order. Really enjoy the selection and service of this site. Thank you Sonja
