Campfire Raclette Cheese Recipe

of servings
20 servings

5 minutes

1 hour

Raclette cheese is such a simple dish, taking minutes to melt. It’s the perfect thing for those rare moments where you have some truly good friends round, the fire’s lit and the cider’s flowing… 


  • One ¼ wheel of Quicke’s Buttery Cheddar
  • 400g of Cornish new potatoes, cooked and sliced
  • Half a cup of capers
  • Some crusty bread (we like sourdough)
  • Duchy Charcuterie N’duja (optional but you wont regret it!)
  • Your choice of ingredients to dip


  1. Raclette basically involves melting the side of a big chunk of cheddar near the fire, then scraping it off onto a plate and eating it with some bits of crusty bread.
  2. So get a hot fire going with a nice mature centre, ready to off-set cook the cheese.
  3. Choose a range of tasty accompaniments; some crusty bread, potatoes, gherkins, veg sticks - something with a good crunch always goes well with the gooey cheese.
  4. If you’re using it, melt the N’duja slowly in a sauce pan.  
  5. Once you’ve got everything ready, set the cheese on a tray just far enough away from the fire so that over a short period, 3 to 4 minutes, its starts to melt.
  6. Gather a group of friends around the table, carry the melting cheese over and watch their faces as you scrape that first layer of cheddar onto a plate.
  7. Replace the cheddar on the grill and it’ll be good to go again in a few minutes.
  8. Just keep bringing the cheese over whenever its ready and repeat and repeat…
