Cheese fondue has almost become a bad joke. With its extreme popularity in the 70's at dinner parties, the dish quickly became out-dated, as with many trends of the time. Cheese fondues are fun to serve when entertaining, and take very little time to prepare and cook.
For a successful fondue purchase true swiss cheese and if possible buy it freshly cut rather than sealed in plastic. If you don't have a Fondue Set, simply cook the fondue in a good saucepan. Serve the fondue with a light salad, along with slices of apple and/or pears or try our Pear Salad recipe.
