how do you ... fondue?
For me ... when I think of holiday traditions fondue comes immediately to mind. Usually, in the month of December we enjoy fondue at least three times. Each time, we patiently grate the cheese, drink wine as we stir, and anxiously await a dinner that involves two of my favorites .... cheese and bread. One of my first nights on the family farm in France I was served fondue and I can still remember it like yesterday. Fondue for Marc and I is more than just a fad that came and went in the 70's ... it is a tradition that we share with our close friends and family. So, it is only natural that when I think of my favorite holiday meal that fondue is the only thing that comes to mind. After a hectic couple of weeks, tonight I am looking forward to a meal with friends that involves fondue. Happy Thursday and Bisous!
our fondue pot: a gift from our family in France for our wedding
another fondue pot: I bought Marc a fondue pot one Christmas before we were married ... that pot is now in the hands of one of our closest friends
do not: drink water with fondue ... believe it or not in France I was told it will give you a stomach ache so of course the only thing to drink is naturally ... wine
