Fondue

by Mel Gardner

Fondue
Fondue is a perfect idea for an easy dinner for two, or a small group. With everyone gathered around one pot, this melty dish really brings everyone together.

From the French word fondre meaning "to melt," fondue is served in a communal pot of melted cheese, chocolate or boiling oil. Using long stemmed forks or skewers, dip anything from bread to vegetables in cheese, marshmallows to fruit in chocolate, and cook meats or vegetables in the boiling oil. Appetizer, meal or dessert--you decide which fondue would fit your date plans best.

Preparations:
First you'll need a fondue pot, which is really just a pot with a small flame underneath. So if you don't want to buy one, we recommend making the fondue on the stove, pour it into a warmed bowl and place the bowl over heated water. If you do use a fondue pot or any kind of open flame, be careful, because even a small fire could ruin a good date. The fondue forks are also nice to have, but not necessary. Long skewers will do just fine.

Dippers:
Cheese: French bread, broccoli, cauliflower, peppers, carrots, apple and sausage.

Chocolate: marshmallows, brownie chunks, angel food cake, strawberries, kiwi, banana, pound cake, and cheesecake.

Oil:  steak, chicken, shrimp, mushrooms, onions, and garlic.
