16 baby yellow or red-skinned potatoes (skins on), scrubbed
8 baby zucchini, halved lengthwise
1 bunch thin asparagus, trimmed
1 bunch broccoli
1 bunch cauliflower
2 plum tomatoes, thinly sliced into rounds
1 3/4 to 2 pounds/800 to 900 g Raclette cheese, cut into 1/3-inch-/1-cm-thick square slabs
1 white onion diced
4 minced cloves of garlic
1 loaf crusty French bread, sliced
3 tablespoons/45 g butter, melted
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Boil the potatoes in a large pot of boiling salted water for about 15 minutes or until they're just tender. Drain the water from the potatoes and allow the potatoes to cool slightly. Cut the potatoes in half and transfer them to a platter.
Arrange the baby zucchini, asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower and tomato slices on the platter alongside the potatoes. Place the cheese on another platter. Place the garlic and onions in small bowls. Place the bread in a basket.
Place the raclette grill in the middle of the dinner table. Preheat the raclette grill according to the manufacturer's instructions.
Brush the top griddle of the raclette grill lightly with some butter. Cook some of the potatoes, zucchini, asparagus and broccoli on the top griddle until they are golden brown and crisp tender, turning occasionally, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Transfer the grilled vegetables to plates. Repeat with the remaining butter, vegetables, salt and pepper. Meanwhile, have each dinner guest place a slice of cheese onto their individual cheese tray, topping it with a slice of tomato or grilled vegetables, if desired, and slide it under the broiler of the raclette grill for about 5 minutes or until the cheese melts, bubbles convincingly and is brown around the edges. Have the dinner guests remove their trays from under the broiler and spoon the melted cheese onto the grilled potatoes on their plates, and eat with the grilled vegetables. Guest can also place any or all typed of vegetables in their tray once cooked and top with cheese.
Since it takes about 5 minutes or so for each slice of cheese to cook, it's a good idea to put a new slice of cheese under the broiler as soon as you've scraped the last one onto your potatoes. That way you can keep them coming.
