Raclette party
Ever wondered what the real French do when they invite friends over for dinner? Come on over to experience a typical French dinner party among friends.

A traditional 'apèritif' or cocktail hour gets us started off. Friends are joyously welcomed with liquors and an assortment of finger foods and nibbles. The colloquially named 'apéro' not only helps to get the conversation flowing but whets your appetite for the hearty meal ahead.
Out comes the 'appareil à raclette' or the raclette grill. Once it's ceremoniously placed on the table, everyone takes their seat and gets in the mood for the fun communal raclette meal. Described by some as being orgasmic, this smorgasbord of melting raclette cheese, steamed new potates and charcuterie is a great way to relax 'autour de la table' and enjoy the best of what France has to offer: food, wine and great company.

La Raclette:

The typical raclette meal consists of:
- Platter of raclette cheese from the Savoie region
- Choice charcuterie (variety of cold cuts) of French and Italian origin
- Steamed baby potatoes
- Pickled gherkins, onions and capers

We like to lighten things up with:
- Fresh vegetables to grill à la minute
- Green salad with sauce vinagrette

You can mix and match the cheese, meat and veggies to your taste, pile them on the individual mini pans and pop them under the grill. Once the cheese get nice and bubbly, 'racler' or scrape it over the potatoes and enjoy with the side salad.

Nous avons été reçu chaleureusement et passé une soirée très sympatique en compagnie de Chaitali et Sébastien. Le point fort du diner était l'entrée, originale et savoureuse typique de Bombay. Je recommende vivement d'aller gouter les saveurs de l'Inde...sans modération.

Une super soirée avec Chaitali et Sébastien. Chaitali nous avait préparé un succulent repas repas Indien avec des épices introuvables en France. Chaitali sait mettre en valeur la culture et la gastronomie indienne avec un savoir faire de cuisinier quasi professionnel. Chaitali nous a appris quelle avait été formée chez Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée! Excusez du peu. Le meilleur "restaurant indien" de Lyon sans discussion.
