The Prairie Kitchen Store offers its inaugural Raclette Dinner for eight.   Owners, Kevin and Alex Felker will host this dinner on Sunday, February 6, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. and respectfully request it be purchased by a vaccinated “pod” of family and/or friends. Raclette is a Swiss dish based on heating cheese and scraping off the melted part. The Felkers plan to serve a vegetarian dinner.  The vegetables will  be grilled on the raclette machine's grill pan.  Your cheese will be broiled beneath the grill in a small pan.  You'll choose the veggies you want from the grill and scrape your melted cheese on them, boiled potatoes, and grilled sourdough bread.  Felkers will also showcase using other cheeses in addition to Raclette Cheese.  Dinner will include house wine and tap beer and end with house made dessert. 

1 Party Row Raclette Dinner for Eight available at $600 (Purchaser can choose to direct the United Way to send invoices to individual participants for $75 each.)
