Do you fondue?

Do you fondue? I do the ‘due!!!

Fondue originated in Switzerland as a dish that is shared at the table in a pot which is heated over a small burner. The term is derived from the French verb fondre (to melt), in the past participle fondu (melted). Traditionally the dish combines cheese, flour and wine which is melted together and becomes a dip for various food items, most commonly bread.

fondueThe burner which is used to heat the fondue is called a rechaud and the traditional pot in which it is cooked is called a caquelon. A caquelon is a special pot that has a thickness on the bottom of the pot sufficient to prevent burning of the melted cheese when the vessel is placed over the burner on the table.

Fondue dates back to the 18th century when both cheese and wine were important industries in Switzerland.  The simple to prepare meal utilized ingredients that were found in most average homes.

Fondue was extrememly popular in the states in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s and, today, it is an extremely popular dish. There are lots of restraunts featuring fondue and fondue sets and cookbooks abound almost anywhere you shop.

Popular fondue dips include a variety of different cheeses, chocolates, broths and more. What is your favorite dip? Mine of course is the C H O C O L A T E!

So…. do you fondue? I certainly do!
