In light of the coronavirus pandemic we are doing our best to adhere to the governor's proclamations. The food industry has been listed as an "Essential Service" but customers are still encouraged to engage in social distancing and face masks are required at all times. Farmers markets are held outdoors and they are deemed as low-risk so we will continue to participate for as long as we are able.
Raclette is both the name of the cheese and the dish itself.
It originated from the French- and Swiss-speaking part of the Alps around 800 years ago. Deriving from the French verb meaning "to scrape," it refers to the act of scraping the melted cheese onto food. It's slowly gaining popularity on the mainland but we'll be the first you find it in Hawai'i.
Cheese Please was created in May 2017. We wanted to bring something different yet familiar to the food scene on the Big Island. When we were brainstorming about what we could serve at the local markets, I relayed my story of how I first saw raclette at the Borough Market in London. It's melted cheese, but in a way people out here have never seen before. Cody was the first to sense the potential and immediately began researching raclette machines and cheese distributors. Our first market was in October 2017 in a pop up tent at Waimea Town Market. We then worked on restoring a 1962 Grumman Olson to turn into our food truck, and have enjoyed serving raclette around the island.
Waimea Town Market has temporarily shut down due to rising case numbers of COVID-19. We will be setting up at Hilo Farmers Market on Saturday's and possibly Wednesday's TBA
