Dust off those fondue sets and start prepping all the dippers; it's yummy, melty cheese time! A recent trip to Switzerland delivers us a crash course on different cheese fondues, and some recipes you can make at home.
I have a confession to make. I have eight fondue sets in my home. Yes, eight.
Because fondue is awesome.
Not only is dipping food into a pot of molten cheese and wine a really old way of eating (fondue as we know it today can be traced back to the 17th century), it’s also one of the most social and convivial culinary traditions there is. When the weather cools down my fondue sets come out, the wines get chilled, and the fêtes de fondue commence.
