The holidays are a time of indulgence and what better way to embrace that concept than by celebrating cheese? Cheese you ask? The Swiss Raclette cheese that cheesemonger Sasha Davies sources, is anything but ordinary. One bite and you’ll discover that this cheese is worth celebrating.

A tradition in Switzerland, Davies and partner Michael Claypool, are introducing Portlanders to this fun and novel party idea. With the utterly freezing weather we’ve been experiencing, comfort food is what many of us are seeking. Raclette is one of the highest forms of comfort food; a mild, ooey, gooey cheese that tops everything from potatoes and meats to pickled vegetables and warm bread.

Cyril’s at Clay Pigeon Winery has developed a novel twist on the usual holiday party. Center the event around bubbly Swiss Raclette cheese and it becomes something that people truly look forward to attending. Corporations and private groups from 20-50 guests are invited to book last minute holiday parties and new year celebrations by calling 503.206.7862 or emailing
