And no, just to be clear, I’m not talking about that processed yellow American cheese found at fast-food chains around the country. This stuff is the real deal.
Like Reading Raclette from Spring Brook Farm in Reading, Vermont, which Madame describes perfectly as follows:
“Raclette is to warm potatoes what Jagermeister is to old ladies’ handbags. In other words, a comfort. It’s herby, sweet, and robust in an onion-meets-beef kind of way. You can serve it in a thousand versatile ways: melt it on toast, bake it in mac’n cheese, or just eat it on baguette with a little whole grain mustard and speck (smoked ham, thinly shaved) – my favorite after-work snack. Add a pint of dark beer and a jar of gherkins, and never look back.”
I mean, seriously, can this woman talk about cheese or what? Are all you turophiles out there drooling as much as I am? Thought so.
Check out Madame Fromage today and join us in celebrating all that is American Cheese Month!
