Is Raclette a good replacement for Morbier?

    I making a quiche which normally calls for Morbier cheese and there was no morbier at the cheese shop I went to. The cheese monger said Raclette was a good replacement and I wondered if that is so?

    Thanks,

    Nicko

    Both are wonderful melting cheeses, I think you will be happy with Raclette. It's one of my favorite cheeses, especially on these cold winter nights. Be sure to remove the rosy rind before adding to your quiche.
