The word Fondue comes from the French verb fondre which means "to melt". Fondue, therefore means "melted". Legend has it that fondue came about during the Reformation, when the Protestant canton of Zurich was battling the surrounding Catholic cantons. Provisions were scarce, and all of the people were hungry. One side put forth a large tub of milk; the other side contributed cheese, which was crumbled into the milk, and also brought some crusts of bread, thus it is said, fondue was born.
Today there are fondues of all types. The Swiss made cheese fondues popular, as well as meat based fondue bourguignonne. Anything goes now! There are chocolate fondues, fondues for fish cooked in scrumptious broths, poached chicken fondues with creamy sauces, you name it! The only thing that is essential when gathering around a fondue pot is high spirits, and good friends! A great wine wouldn't hurt either! It was once written, "In a country where people eat fondue, there can be no wars."
ALL FONDUES COME WITH ASSORTED BREADS, FRUITS & VEGETABLES, APPLEWOOD SMOKED CHICKEN BREAST, SAUSAGES, PEPPERONI, AND ROASTED SHALLOTS FOR DIPPING
PLEASE ALLOW 20-25 MINUTES FOR FONDUE AS EACH IS MADE TO ORDER
