Traditionally, raclette is served with boiled potatoes, gherkins and pickled onions. The cheese itself is seasoned with freshly ground black pepper. However, there are no limits to culinary fancies: pickled mushrooms or vegetables and a number of mixed herbs are just as suitable.
When a large party meets to partake in raclette, it will be impossible to avoid waits at the beginning and between turns. Thus, it is a good idea to serve cold meats, sausage or dry-cured ham with black bread (such as Wallis rye bread).
The connaisseur says: Dry and tangy white wine (served cool) or tea go particularly well with the meal.
