Raclette Jurassienne



Raclette Jurassienne can mean two things:
    1. It can be the cheese called "Raclette" when it is made in the Jura region of eastern France on the border with Switzerland. It will be made from unpasteurized cow's milk, by small producers, and have a 45% fat content;
    2. It can be the meal called "Raclette", made with melted cheese and accompaniments, but instead of the cheese being "Raclette Cheese", as is usual, the cheese is "Bleu de Gex", which is made in the Jura region. It is served with the same accompaniments as the regular meal called "Raclette."

Bon mots

"What comforted me? That is easy. It was a strong cold chicken jelly so very, very thick. My mother's Chinese cook would fix it. He would cook it down, condense it--this broth with all sorts of feet in it, then it would gell into sheer bliss. It kept me alive once for three weeks when I was ill as a child. And I've always craved it since."

-- James Beard (5 May 1903 – 21 January 1985)
