Okay, so we all remember the fondue set our parents had growing up; it was the thing to do on weekend evenings I remember.Â But it was always cheese fondue and more cheese fondue.Â There have been fortunate evens through the years, and chocolate has made it to the fondue circuit.Â But first, to the facts…
The word fondue comes from the French word ‘fondre’ which means ‘to melt’ andÂ refers to several French Swiss communal dishes shared at the table in earthenware pots over a small burner.Â Though cheese fondues are perhaps the most known, there are several other possibilities for the contents of the pot that is used for dipping.
Â Cheese fondue was invented due to necessity.Â In the remote & isolated mountain villages in the Swiss Alps, people had to rely on locally made food.Â During the winter food became scarce and the Swiss found that melting stale cheese made it edible and delicious.Â And due to myÂ affinity for chocolate, chocolate fondue has become a necessity!
Let’s take a look at the fabulous Nostalgia Stainless Steel Fondue Fountain:
This beauty has everything you need for a tasty romantic evening (just add strawberries) or for your next party.
This fountain is easy to use and maintain, just pour your chocolate into the base and switch on the motor, the chocolate travels up the tower before gently cascading down and wooing all.Â
You can use any chocolate- white, dark, butterscotch, mint- your imagination is the limit.
Cost- $50.Â Whatever your feelings on the time old classic fonude, you cannot make a wrong turn with chocolate.
