Celebrate Valentine’s Day in Style

Getting a block of cheese ready next to the fire.

Ingredients:

One ¼ wheel of Quicke’s Buttery Cheddar 
400g of Cornish new potatoes, cooked and sliced 
Half a cup of capers 
Some crusty bread or sourdough 
Duchy Charcuterie N’duja (optional but you wont regret it!) 
Your choice of ingredients to dip

Instructions:

1. Raclette basically involves melting the side of a big chunk of cheddar near the fire, then scraping it off onto a plate and eating it with some tasty crusty bread.

2. Get a hot fire going with a nice mature centre, ready to off-set cook the cheese.

3. Choose a range of tasty accompaniments; crusty bread or sourdough, potatoes, gherkins, veg sticks - something with a good crunch always goes well with the gooey cheese.
4. If you’re using it, melt the N’duja slowly in a saucepan. 
5. Once you’ve got everything ready, set the cheese on a tray just far enough away from the fire so that over a short period, 3 to 4 minutes, its starts to melt.

7. Just keep bringing the cheese over whenever its ready and repeat and repeat…
