'Alpine Night' set for Friday at The Cheese Traveler

The Cheese Traveler, the Albany specialty cheese shop that seems to endlessly come up with twists on its craft, will present an "Alpine Night" on Friday from 5 to 9 p.m.

The event will spotlight raclette, a smooth and melted Alpine cheese whose namesake comes from the French verb racler, meaning to scrape. It is melted under a heat lamp and scraped onto savory foods, such as mixed vegetables, meats, and other accompaniments.

The Cheese Traveler's take on a raclette menu will incude such items as "Swiss Nachos" (melted raclette over pickle-brined potato chips, local ham, and cornichons) and a build-your-own raclette plate with charcuterie choices ranging from whey-fed Prosciutto di Parma and Pâté to Sopressata. A selection of wines by the glass and craft beers will round out the night.

The Cheese Traveler is located at 540 Delaware Avenue. Phone: 703-0092.
