Raclette is 1 of the 2 most popular dishes for New Year’s Eve

If you want a really authentic taste, you should get yourself an electronic Raclette grill (e.g. on Amazon), which you can put on the dining table. You and your guests will have their own small frying pans, which you can fill with what every you like to … e.g. onions, bacon, sweet corn and a thick slice of cheese… and put it in the grill infront of them.
While everybody waits for their frying pans to be ready to eat, you enjoy all the delicous snacks and side dish on the table around them … e.g. fresh salads, pickles, herb butter baguette, edamame …
