Is there a better way to gather together than with a Raclette cheese night? 

Raclette is the name of the cheese, the machine, and the dish - which is a traditional Alpine meal that includes fireside melted cheese over an abundance of roasted or pickled vegetables, fresh baguettes, and cured meats. This meal has gathered people together since the 12th Century! "Raclette" comes from the French word "racler," meaning "to scrape," and refers to the action you'll take to create your perfect plate!  

You'll receive the following:

  • Rental of Raclette machine and tools
  • Quarter wheel of raclette (2.5+ lbs)
  • 2 Bread Platters (equal to three baguettes)
  • 3 Cured Meats Platters (includes cured meats and pickled vegetables)

*Serves 6-8 people, depending. 

After you pick up your supplies at our Cheese Shop Pickup Window, you can start setting up for your big night! Make sure to leave your cheese out at room temperature for 1-2 hours before serving - this will make it easier to melt. Set up your machine, lay out your trays, and pour yourself a glass of wine. It's that easy! 

Rental Agreement 

  • Raclette machine and knife are due back by noon (12 p.m.) the following day. Do not clean them. Instead, return them dirty in the crate provided. We will immediately plug it in. If it works and there's no damage, great! If not, your card on file will be charged the amounts listed below: 
  • Renter will pay extra $25 per day for missing items
  • After 3 days, renter will pay to replace the missing or broken equipment ($200 for machine; $40 for swivel stand; $40 for scraping knife)

By renting, you agree to these terms.

So, who's ready to party? Whether you want to treat yourself, a sweetheart, or have a small safe gathering of close friends, a Raclette Party is the "whey" to go!

Have more than 6 folks? Then rent another kit! We have 5 machines in total.

In order to avoid product damage and reduced quality, we do not ship cheese event plates or cheese trays at this time.

Can I select my own cheeses? Every cheese tray features a variety of styles (bloomy/soft, hard, blue) and milk types (goat, cow, sheep) to showcase different cheeses, ensuring all your guests - from cheese novices to turophiles - love something. We select and order the cheeses from our artisan makers seasonally. While you can’t customize your selection, you can specify if you want us to avoid something (like “no blue cheese please”) in the notes section. Ultimately, our goal is that everyone loves the cheese. (Otherwise, we’d be out of business!)

What if I don’t like a certain type of cheese? Please let us know in the notes section, and we’ll do our best to avoid it!

What are the pairings offered? We try to showcase the 5 tastes: sweet, salty, bitter, sour, and umami - as a compliment to the cheese selection. While it can vary, we generally include a selection of fresh and dried fruits, pickled vegetables and/or olives, and Quicos (addictive Spanish corn nuts).

Not sure what cheese tray size to get? A good rule of thumb is 1 ounce of each cheese per person for a dinner portion, or 2-3 ounces total for light grazing.

What if we have allergies? Please specify any allergies when ordering, and note that we build our cheese trays in our Cheese House and Shop, where marcona almonds and bread are present. Additionally, we use latex or vinyl gloves when plating food.

Does it come with crackers or bread? No, but you can add it on! Select either a whole baguette, sliced baguette, or crackers. Note that all these come in bulk for you to plate. However, the Grazing Tables do come with Bread and Cracker Platters.

What if I eat gluten-free? Good news! There is no gluten on our cheese plates. You can add on GF crackers to your purchase.

Is the tray compostable? Our Cheese Boards are made from wood and lined with food-grade wax paper. We tried a compostable board, but it fell apart on too many folks. So while we continue to look for the next best thing, we’re using our tried and true sturdy boards (that have now become popular nationwide - yes, we’ll take some credit for being originals!). Due to food service rules and health department standards, we cannot reuse cheese trays. However, you can! We often flip them over, put wax paper down, and serve right on them from home. Alternatively, bring them back to the Shop. We’re teaming up with a local school as a canvas-alternative, ready-to-hang piece of art to be painted or used for crafts.

For your convenience and to avoid wait times in the Cheese Shop, online orders should be picked up at our Pickup Window, located directly behind our cheese shop in the alley between Uncle Nicky’s and Julio’s. To avoid congestion, please do not pick up in the Cheese Shop.

Please plan to pick up your tray at your selected pickup time, noting we have a designated pickup window open daily from 11am-7pm.
