Some history

Raclette IGP: Who invented raclette, France or Switzerland? Called fromage rôti (‘baked cheese’) in olden days, it originated in the Swiss region of Valais in the Middle Ages. Only in the early 20th century did raclette spread throughout the Swiss valleys and become one of the country’s favourite dishes. The French had to wait until the 1970s for it to gain popular appeal, thanks to the raclette appliance.


  • 4 slices rustic country bread
  • 4 slices Savoie IGP raclette cheese
  • 2 white onions
  • 1tbs sugar
  • 10g butter
  • 2tsp Savora mustard
  • Olive oil
  • Sea salt flakes and freshly-ground pepper


Peel the onions and slice finely.
Sauté in olive oil in a very hot frying pan. Once the onions are translucent, add the sugar. Season with salt and pepper, then continue to cook them on a low heat for a few minutes until they reach a confit state. Set aside.
Spread the mustard on 2 slices of country bread. Add the onion jam and 2 slices of raclette. Top with the second slice of bread.
Heat the frying pan with a little oil and the butter. Grill the sandwiches on a high heat for about 3 minutes on each side, until the cheese has melted and the bread is golden brown.
Serve immediately!
