I'm a huge fan of the 1970's. Not only does it represent my childhood, but the colors - fabrics and style of the era also remind me of German culture (which I adore....). So it only seems right that I would gravitate towards something as elaborate and fun as FONDUE.
Remember when the fondue trend came back in 2000, and everyone rushed out and bought one? It was so much fun at first to put things on the fork and dip a variety of items into sauces. However....by the end of the night you realize you had somehow eaten an entire block of cheese, a loaf of bread dipped on garlic oil along with the bag of marshmallows that went so nicely with the melted chocolate. Ugh.
Dietary concerns aside
Reader poll........Do you think fondue is a DO or a fon-DON'T? If you were invited to someones house for dinner, and it was an unexpected fondue theme - what would you think? Cool - or dietary nightmare? I have a girls night coming up, and I'm thinking about busting out the FONDUE pot for DIY fun. I'll just have to be sure I don't wear a fitted dress and work out the day of - AND the day after. Why is it that everything so delicious is a waistline killer? Suck. If you are a fondue-er, what is your favorite recipe?
FREE UNWANTED ADVICE (yay, everyone's favorite thing): If you're in the mood to throw a fondue party - it's VERY HELPFUL if you have 3 pots. One non-stick for CHEESE, one stainless steel for MEAT/VEGETABLES and another non-stick for CHOCOLATE. It's a hassle to switch out pans while trying to entertain.
