Raclette

今日は金曜日なので外食予定でしたが、行くつもりだったレストランが予約で埋まっていて入れず、諦めて家で食べることにしました。この時期はレストランもタクシーも道路もお店も混むことを忘れていました。

It’s Friday today so we would have gone out to a restaurant but the one we were thinking of going to was fully booked when we called yesterday.  I forget that everywhere – restaurants, taxis, traffic, shops – is busy this time of year.

こんなとき、いつもはチーズフォンデューですが、今日は久しぶりのラクレット。チーズが違うだけで一緒に食べるものは同じです。

For such an occasion we usually have Cheese Fondue but we had Raclette today.  Different cheese but all the rest is the same.

このラクレットの機械、大きくて場所を取るし熱いのですよ。20年ほど前はこんなのしかなかったのですが、最近はもっとコンパクトで使いやすいそうなのが出ています。小さいのを買い直そうかと思っていはいるのですが、お引越しまで待ちます。

This Raclette machine is very large, takes so much room, and it gives out so much heat!  We didn’t see many kinds 20 years ago, I think this was the only type we found then, but these days I see some cute small ones so I feel we should change to a smaller one, but we’ll wait until we move.

ラクレット、1人どれくらいチーズが必要なんだろうと調べて見たら、200gから250gとありました。で、400gのパックを買ったのですが、こんなに食べられません〜(笑)。わたしたちは2人で280gくらいかな。サラダやポテトを食べるのもありますが、はっきり言って飽きます。

I searched online how much cheese we need per person and I found out it’s supposed to be between 200g and 250 g per person.  There was a pack of 400g in the shop so that’s what I bought – but this was much too much for us!  I think about 280 for two of us was enough.  We have a very large salad and a few other things with it, maybe that’s why, but I get tired of eating cheese after a few slices.

チーズフォンデューの時もですが、サラダは大量に食べます。他に茹でた新じゃが(っていうのかな?サラダ用の小さな甘いじゃがいも)と人参とサラミや生ハム。

Same when we have Cheese Fondue, we tend to have quite a large portion of salad with this meal.  Also some boiled carrots, new potatoes and salami & ham.

まだ、チーズフォンデューの方が飽きない気がします。でも、久しぶりだったので美味しく楽しくいただきました。

I feel I can have Cheese fondue more than Raclette.  Still, we hadn’t had it for a long time so we enjoyed it.
