Vacherin (la boite chaude)

Vacherin (la boite chaude) | Maître Philippe & Filles

The Vacherin is basically not a recipe in the true sense of the word, it's much more about a nice get-together.
Vacherin Mont-d'Or is a soft cheese made from raw cow's milk. It comes from the French Haut-Doubs, a region of Franche-Comté as well as the Swiss Jura, the area around the Lac de Joux and the Vaud Jura. The term Mont d'Or (French for gold mountain, named after the Jura mountain of the same name, Mont d'Or) appeared during the 19th century. It has enjoyed protected designation of origin status since 1981.

Ingredients for 2 people:

and everything else you need for a raclette: potatoes in their skins, Brési du Jura (air-dried beef), cornichons, etc. A mixed leaf salad goes very well with it.

  • Time required: 5 min.
  • Time in the oven: approx. 30 min.


  • Wrap the box (without the lid!) with aluminum foil.
  • Pierce the crust several times with a fork like you would a pie crust and push the two cloves of garlic into the cheese.
  • Place the Vacherin in an oven preheated to 200 degrees. Now you can also treat yourself to a sip of wine.
