Raclette Party Contest: who would you most like to melt some cheese with?
Boska USA, purveyors of fine cheese gadgetry and upholders of great European cheese traditions, recently sent along a sweet set of photographs of an event they'd held with the help of Jason Sobocinski, host of the Cooking Channel's The Big Cheese. Now, besides looking overwhelmingly delicious, the photos got me thinking—especially this one:
If y'all don't know about raclette yet, it's an upside-down fondue, more or less. You take cooked potatoes, pickles, ham and assorted treats, and scrape molten cheese on top. It's one of those things you do with friends and family, an occasion where you sit around with people you love, drinking wine, talking, and goofing around. It's a good time, not too serious. So here's the question:
What people, living or dead, would you most like to have over for raclette?
Answers can be historical, allegorical, folklorical, or actual living people. Name who's in your raclette party, why you'd like to feed them cheese, and what particular victuals you'd be draping with that sweet golden fromage, and you could win a barbeclette from Boska USA!
The barbeclette is a handy device which makes perfectly melted cheese a snap. Just slip a slice of your favorite cheese into its non-stick tray, and drop it on the grill or griddle and you'll have yourself a perfectly gooey slice of molten goodness in a minute or two. It's perfect for outdoor cooking, whether you want to make traditional raclette or a very serious cheeseburger.
So don't wait, log in with a valid email (so we can contact you if you win) and post your raclette party people below. We will pick a winner June 29, just in time for grillin' season.
