This traditional French/ Swiss dish is great for dinner parties, entertaining with a wow factor but without the stress. Here is my Irish version, with an old friend, Durrus. It works very well! If you do not have a Raclette machine, in the oven will work just fine.

You’ll Need:

¼ Wheel Of Durrus

Boil enough potatoes for 4 people

Few Baby Sweet Potatoes

A selection of Irish cured meats (Gubbeen salami, good cooked ham…)

Janet’s Cucumber relish for the zing factor

A nice lettuce of fresh leaves

Dressing

How To:

Boil the potatoes gently and keep them hot. Put your selection of meats on a plate and the pre-sliced cheese on the other (ask your cheesemonger to do this for you). Janet’s cucumber relish works really well instead of the cornichons “gherkins” used in France. The green leaves with a honey dressing helps to balance this rich dish. Crunchy florets of Broccoli are also very pleasant.
