4 Tons of Raclette Melted Over the Snow

In the span of the 23 days surrounding the 2010 Olympic games, 4 tons of Swiss cheese and 2 tons of Swiss chocolate were consumed by 60,000 visitors to the House of Switzerland.
“We had to order another shipment of cheese halfway through the Games because it was so popular,” said Swiss chef Beda Zingg."
Raclette and cheese fondue were the main attractions of this hugely successful open-house style event at both national headquarters, one at the Whistler ski resort and one in Vancouver. (source)
