Sunday, 2 to 8 p.m.
Montrose Cheese & Wine will be celebrating Raclette cheese with a two-day party from 2 to 8 p.m. on Sunday and Monday.

At the shop, $18 plates will include potatoes with caramelized onions, frisée, cornichons and baguette slices for ($22 with salami). There will also be wines on special to add to the fun.
