Day 639 : How to Save / How to Splurge Dispatch #37

Looking for something to warm you from the insides out as we slowly move into late Fall? Then look no further than the Raclette cheese at Grace's Marketplace on 71st street and 3rd avenue for $12.99 a pound.

Raclette is an Alpine style washed rind cow's milk cheese. Semi-soft, melting, and pliable, this cheese has a fantastic nutty sweetness to it.

Why you might ask would this particular cheese warm me from the inside out?

Well that's because of the Swiss dish -- Raclette -- crafted utilizing its namesake cheese. Raclette is heated on a grill so that it becomes like its own personal fondue perfect for dipping bread, potatoes, veggies, or cured meats into while enjoying a nice glass of red wine.

Did you know Raclette derives from the French word 'racler' meaning to scrape?
