Best Cheese Fondue and Fondue Pots

The Best Cheese Fondue is Easy to Make

Cheese fondue is easy to make, is delicious and nutritious – creating it is a ready to go party!

Making a DELICIOUS cheese fondue – probably the best that you have ever had – is really not difficult.

Cheese Fondue is basically melted cheese with wine, and a few other binding ingredients like butter, and flour. The easiest way to make cheese delicious is to melt it!

Cheese fondue is very popular: It is the National Food of Switzerland – which is definitely one reason Switzerland is on my travel wish list!

I love to eat Fondue when we out: my kids and I go to “Fondue Fred’s” in Berkeley. However, It is a lot of fun to make fondue for dinner, and fondue can be a balanced meal if you choose fruits, vegetables, sausages and/or hearty breads as dippers. Making fondue just leads to a party – it is meant to share. And it is a food that most people can eat: a lot of vegetarians still partake in milk products, so cheese fondue may make a good dinner choice for them.

Cheese Fondue is certainly enough for a party on it’s own, but you also can add to the party by bringing in different kinds of fondue. i.e. chocolate or hot oil where you can cook meat.

Nutritious Cheese is Good for you

Delicious Yummy Cheese

Besides the obvious yummy factor, cheese is good for you. It is full of calcium, vitamin A, vitamin B12, zinc and phosphorous. It is a good source of protein.

Of course, it can also be high in fat and in calories. And for me, if I am going to make a nice dish for company or my family like the cheese fondue I am going to use the traditional full-fat version. I also just instinctively shy away from artificial products.

So the answer here like in most things is moderation. Enjoy the wonderful parts of life – friends, food and togetherness while we can!

It’s great to know that you do not have to shop for wonderful cheeses now because of Amazon’s convenience: it can actually come to you to your home and be there for you whenever you want your cheese fondue. I order as much Prime as I can too, because it is quick, but I have never had any trouble with the vendors on Amazon because Amazon is so strict with customer support.

Cheese is the National Food of Switzerland

Switzerland is Known for It’s Cheese

Cheese Fondue is promoted as the National Food

Swiss Cheese Fondue recipes have been known since the 1700’s. Early recipes included eggs, it always has included cheese and wine. Around 1875 the first recipe of “Swiss Cheese Fondue” was published with that name, and it was advertised and promoted as a national food.

The Swiss promoted it extensively in the 1930’s – so that people would buy more cheese and help the national industry. After World War II, the Swiss government became famous for sending fondue sets to soldiers and public events to promote Swiss Cheese Fondue as a Symbol of Swiss unity.

  3. Yum! Sounds like a great party in the making! and Fondue pots are great gifts too!

  4. I’m not fan of cheese fondue but am a big fan of oil fondue and often prepare one. These copper pots are stunning, definitely the kind of pots I’d like to see in my home: not just beautiful but in copper, food tastes really fine.

  5. I’ve never tried fondue either. I do love cheese so I may have to try a couple variations of the recipe here! First I’ll need one of these nice fondue pots!

  6. klash

    I’ve never tried fondue. But I love cheese, the recipe sounds amazing. Bread would probably be my favorite dipper.
