Are you planning a home party and feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the work that comes along with being the host, especially when it comes to cooking? I think I just found the perfect solution for busy people, such as myself. As you already know from my previous posts, I run my own bakery and that means long hours and not exactly a lot of time for organizing home parties. I don’t complain because I love what I do, but I still need to get better of managing the rest of my time.
But let’s focus on the solution I identified for great home parties. In this post, I will talk to you about raclette grills and what they are all about. When I first learned about raclette grills, I had to look up online to see what raclette means, and so I discovered it is a type of Swiss meal, that involves melted cheese and plenty of grilled goodies.
So, a raclette grill is a cooking device that practically allows you to have this type of delicious Swiss meal without messing up half the kitchen. What I find to be really great about a raclette grill, though, is the fact that it is practically made for a party. The model I got has a space for melting cheese at the bottom, and a grill on top for cooking various tasty bits. There are pans and spatulas provided for 6 people, which means that I can gather all my friends and enjoy a home party really easy.
This is, I suppose, the main role of a raclette grill: to bring people together. I have already hosted a few raclette parties and everyone is more than happy with the arrangement. Another great thing for me is that I do not have to spend hours in the kitchen preparing food for my guests. I just stock on cheese, as well as bits of meat, veggies, shrimp and fish, so that everyone can grill their own food and melt their own cheese, using the utensils provided.
I am known to be a gracious host and to always offer my friends the best of everything I can offer. But I must say that they seem much more excited now to come over, whenever I mention the words ‘home party’.
There are so many things to love about a raclette grill. It is a great conversation starter, and guests can choose whatever they like to eat. I do not have to bend over backwards to cook for these events and everyone is happy. Plus, cleaning the non-stick cooking surfaces and the pans is really a breeze, so I do not have to sweat cleaning after the party, either.
