New & Coming Soon!



An updated and upgraded edition of the market leader on fondue, with over 200 recipes.


Fondue is ever popular and is the perfect choice when you want to create a memorable meal experience for family and friends. The Fondue Bible has been a market leader and a trusted resource on fondue cooking for over a decade. In addition to traditional favorites and new twists on those classics, it offers a range of recipes that go well beyond the familiar cheese and chocolate varieties, along with dozens of dips and sauces specially designed to complement the recipes.

There are hot oil fondues such as Ginger Beef Fondue, Zesty Lime Chicken, and Tempura Vegetables, and savory broth fondues such as Mongolian Hot Pot, Honey Garlic Chicken Fondue, and Thai Pork Fondue in Lemon Grass Broth. Traditional recipes with a twist include Emmentaler Fondue with Caramelized Shallots and Cheddar Cheese and Beer Fondue, while decadent finishers include Bittersweet Chocolate Fondue and Cherries Jubilee Fondue.

With more than 200 recipes, there's a fondue for everyone. The Fondue Bible also provides menu-planning suggestions, a guide to using and maintaining different types of fondue pots and lots of tips and tricks for fondue cooking. This updated edition offers 10 new recipes in an entire section devoted to throwing fondue parties.
