Raclette at Le Chalet Savoyard in Paris

This specialty from the central European region of Savoy calls for a half-wheel of raclette cheese to be fastened to a heating apparatus that slowly melts it. One then scrapes (racler, in French) the cheese onto piles of boiled potatoes and charcuterie.

Yes, please!
