Raclettes are some of the sexiest things in the food industry; a wheel of cheese is melted and scraped onto food like a gooey waterfall.
It has been popular in European cuisine, but you can get a taste of it thanks to Haute Production, who created a beef chili Raclette dog for the 3rd annual OOZEFEST in Santa Ana, Calif.
Haute is a catering company out of Orange County which specializes in global cuisine, so it makes sense that they'd take a Swiss concept and seamlessly apply it to an American favorite dish, such as the chili dog.
With King's Hawaiian rolls as a bun, the hot dog is topped with housemade chili, made by Chef Keith Prante, and consists of chunks of beef tongue. Then the main event comes in, as the raclette cheese is drenched on top, leaving your mouth watering more than a garden hose.
The hot dog is a limited time dish that will only be available Saturday, Oct. 14 at OOZEFEST at the MainPlace Mall in Santa Ana. For more information on vendors or to purchase tickets, please visit www.oozefestival.com.
