It’s National Cheese Fondue Day! Cheese fondue originated in
Switzerland at the beginning of the 19th century. Based on the simple
ingredients (melted cheese and whatever leftovers you want to use for
dipping) historians believe that fondue began as a peasant meal.
A cheese fondue usually includes a blend of different cheeses like
Gruyere, Emmental, Raclette, and cheddar. You can also add ingredients
such as milk, spices, cream, wine, or brandy for additional flavor and
to thicken the mixture. A traditional fondue pot is called a “caquelon.”
The heavy earthenware vessel promotes even heat distribution and
produces a delicious smooth fondue!
To celebrate National Cheese Fondue Day, invite some friends over for
a fondue potluck. Ask everyone to bring dippers like bread, steamed
vegetables, cured meats, and fresh fruit. Bon appétit!
I've never had fondue. Never seen it either, I don't think it's popular here.
