I'd never heard of a raclette until Andrea brought this idea to our attention, but it was super cool! The gourmet girls met on April 30, 2013 for a raclette adventure! Andrea provided all of the meat (steak, chicken and shrimp). Each of us brought veggies, fresh herbs, cheese and bread to complete the meal. We also had some different dipping sauces, including a balsamic reduction, which was amazing! Raquel made a very cool pineapple dessert to finish off the night. Thank you Andrea for introducing us to such a fun way of cooking!
Meats and veggies are placed on top to cook and you put cheeses in the little trays underneath to melt. As you can see, Andrea had the raclette in the middle of the table and these cool plates with divided sections to help organize your different items (kind of hard to see on the white background).

Here's a shot of our assembly line/buffet.
This was one of my creations - sourdough bread, melted cheese, fresh basil & tomatoes with balsamic reduction. YUM!
