Raclette

Pam joined her handball team for a night at one of the ladies' hytte on Fosen, a large island across the fjord. 15 of them there, they had a wonderful time!

This evening we accepted an invitation at Daniel and Evelina's for a special Raclette dinner that's popular in Switzerland in the winter. Thick slices of cheese are placed on small pans and grilled underneath heating elements in a tabletop stove. Meanwhile, vegetables are grilled on the top of the stove. When the cheese is bubbly and starting to brown, it is scooped out with a wooden paddle onto potatoes and eaten with onions and spices.

Oh my, it was so good. We ate far too much and rolled ourselves back through the snow, warm and happy.
