THE FONDUE BIBLE: The 200 Best Recipes
This bestselling fondue title has been updated with an all-new cover plus 16 additional color photos
There’s something unique about sharing a fondue with family and friends around the table. Everyone is relaxed — including the host — and the pace of the intimate meal is as leisurely as you want. Fonduing is also a fun and easy way to entertain and is more sociable than your usual dinner party — and you don’t have to wait for a special occasion.
Unlike the fondues of yesterday, which were never exactly low in fat, many of these recipes have a healthier twist, with fresh foods swished in flavorful broths instead of oils. But never fear, chocolate lovers, there’s an extensive compilation of dessert fondues in the book, including various types of chocolate paired with complementary flavors such as maple, cherry, coffee, peanut butter and mint. Also included is a dizzying array of other sweet sensations — from caramel to rum and key lime.
Ultimately, fonduing is all about fun and relaxation. For the host, a fondue party requires only a little shopping, chopping, marinating and grating. After that, it’s the guests who do the “work”: cooking, dipping, dunking and devouring!
