Nothing beats the blistering cold weather like a Sunday night fondue dinner with friends. This past weekend our friend Claire invited Jeff and I over for a festive fondue dinner. Since our last fondue dinner at Gejas about a month ago, I have been dreaming about the next time we would be melting cheese, dipping steak & chicken into boiling oil and drinking great wine. Well friends, tonight was the night.
Claire had a great cheese recipe made with two types of cheese, dry white wine, garlic and nutmeg. We cut up some french bread and apples to dip. I probably could have stopped with the cheese course, but we also cut up chicken and steak for the main course, which we all enjoyed. I had no idea how easy it was to make fondue, the biggest challenge is to have the fondue pots and burners. All in all it was a very successful night with a lot of laughs.
The next time you want to throw a festive dinner party or just have a small group of friends over, why not try fondue? I know I will!
