When is the last time you and your family had fondue for dinner? I know fondue was a big thing of the past, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t still enjoy fondue today.
Fondue can make a very relaxing meal. Your family can sit around the dining table, cooking their own meats and veggies, then later dip luscious fruits into melted chocolate. Doesn’t that just make you want to get out your grocery shopping list and start writing down ingredients for making fondue? Well, don’t!
You can buy already-assembled fondue kits. At least you can at Whole Foods Market. A fondue kit saves you the hassle of finding this cheese to mix with that cheese plus the red wine vinaigrette you need to mix them all together. I don’t know about you, but shopping for those ingredients seems difficult, not to mention pricey. I’d prefer to just buy the one fondue kit, and concentrate more on meat, bread, and my vegetables of choice.
Once you’re ready to make fondue from your fondue kit, all you need to do is simply heat the kit ingredients up in a fondue pot. Once those ingredients are hot enough, you’re ready to cook your meats and veggies and dip your bread. It’s pretty simple.
Not only are there cheese fondue kits, but there also are chocolate fondue kits as well. You’d of course need to purchase fresh strawberries, bananas, and whatever else you’d want to coat with chocolate, but you’ll miss out on trying to figure out which chocolate gets mixed with whatever else.
The cheese and chocolate fondue kits that my family has tried were each $9.99. That price, I know, doesn’t sound cheap, but it is a good price when you start to add up each individual item you end up needing just to make a good fondue. And the fondue kit I purchased tasted great.
Having a fondue dinner with your family is such a good experience. But fondue also makes a great meal for entertaining guests. For whichever group you choose to cook for, I hope you are able to try a fondue kit soon!
