My husband and I went a couple of years ago to visit a friend. We stayed longer so we had lunch with them. They prepared us something special, something we didn’t eat before: fondue dish. They had (I have to admit) a can – a package that only needed to be heated in the microwave. They prepared the bread and a salad and that was it.
One year later, being in Austria, we looked for those magic cans of fondue cheese and we bought some – brought home and eat them at home or with parents. As I was trying to find out more about fondue cheese I saw that the recipe is not so complicated and that one could cook it at home too.
According to Wikipedia Fondue is a Swiss communal dish shared at the table in an earthenware pot (caquelon) over a small burner (rechaud).The word is drawn from the French verb fondre (to melt) in the past participle fondu (melted). It most likely originated in the Jura mountains.
Looking on YouTube I found two videos explaining how one could make it’s own home made fondue. So if you want to impress your family or friends, try this idea: Fondue cheese!
