Swiss cheese is famous for having holes. The holes are created by the bacteria which change the milk to Swiss cheese. Propionibacter uses the lactic acid which is produced by other bacteria, and produces carbon dioxide gas; the gas slowly forms bubbles which makes the holes.
Switzerland is a quite famous for making incredibly good cheese. But in Verbier, Switzerland holds a reputation for the place where you can enjoy eating delicious Raclette cheese.
Raclette is a semi-hard cow’s milk Swiss cheese that is fashioned into a wheel of about 6 kg (13 lb). It is most commonly used for melting. It is also a Swiss dish based on heating the cheese and scraping off the melted part.
