Nothing screams winter like a warm fondue dinner

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!

Cheese, bread, apples, steak, chicken & wine oh my!

  1. I totally agree! Our family of six love sitting down around a broth fondue. We love eating, chatting and laughing as we enjoy our fondue. Oftentimes, unmindful of how long it's taking us to finish dinner, lol! Who cares anyway, we'd love to spend as much time as we can with our growing kids. :)
