I think lauraj was after a recipe/method for making the cheese itself.

Nice find though, good ideas there.

Try Rik's guru Fankhauser:

I thought raclette was melted cheese over whatever takes your fancy, but apparently not:

I can remember reading Heidi as a child and the old grandfather melting cheese over the fire and scraping it over his bread. I always wondered how he did it without making a mess of the fireplace. Needless to say my mother wasn't one to allow experiments based on what you had read in a book!
