Fondue for Two +

20 Oct

The weather is not as warm, and it’s about that time to move the parties indoors.  The holidays are soon approaching, and get togethers are the name of the game.  Everyone wants their party to be unique and fun.

Let’s consider fondue.  There are so many different kinds of fondue that you can get pretty creative.  Fondues can be served during cocktail hour, or even as dessert.  Either way they are usually tons of fun. The thing about fondue, is that it is so easy to make, and it is also a conversational piece.  Fondues are so quaint, the way that they are set up, can make a big difference in your parties décor, giving it a hint of elegance.

You can serve your fondues with all kinds of dippers such as breads, fruit, and crudité (raw or blanched vegetables served as an hors d’oeuvre and often accompanied by a dip).

Here is a tasty and unusual fondue recipe.  I hope you enjoy it!
