Born in the Shire, raised on the slopes
I hail from the small Oxfordshire village of Brightwell Baldwin, but it was during my formative years spent on the slopes of the Alps that the inspiration for the Raclette was born. Having served my time at Exeter University I set out looking for a way to channel my youthful exhuberance in a positive direction. The one thing I have always been hugely passionate about is my food, and as i left Uni the street food scene was really blooming but no one was doing Raclette, MADNESS. when i thought back to all the holidays i went on to visit my relatives in the alps one of my fondest memories would always being having a Raclette with all the Fam. so Based on nostalgia and a gut feeling Le Rac Shack came to be. We try to maintain not only a high standard of cuisine, but also an entertaining atmosphere wherever we serve. Even if you're not hungry you might enjoy watching the unique cooking process of melting the raclette.
A tribute to a founding father who is no longer with the team
"For me the most satisfying part of the whole process is the scrape. Watching all that lovely melted crispy cheese fall over the baby Charlotte potatoes and home honey roasted ham makes me hungry every time I serve a plate. That and the look on people's faces as they see what's in store for them. Originally I'm half Greek and half English but the more I do this the more I think I might have been better off born in the Alps."
