My friend Nicole used to live in
, where she discovered this dish at a popular ski resort. Later, she moved to Luxembourg . When I went to college in the London Edinburgh, I used come to and visit her flat. We’d usually eat real raclette, which is a variation of fondue using a special type of cheese also called raclette, and where the vegetables and meats are also cooked right in front of you on a raclette griddle. After one visit I went back to London , hit up a vegetable sale at Lidl, and came up with a budget version. Edinburgh
