The Fun of Eating Fondue
Have you ever wondered where and how fondue got its start? Though the idea of sitting table side and cooking your own food in small pot of oil, cheese, or chocolate doesn’t seem strange now, it could have been too peculiar to people years ago. Fondue is fun because eating with your hands, sans silverware, is a lot of fun.
The Perfect Pot
What really makes eating fondue unique are the fun little pots that you get to pull food out of. A fondue set typically comes with a pot and several fondue sticks that allow you to pull food in and out of your pot easily. There are many different colors and sizes of fondue pots that are available. It just depends which kind you want.
When people think of fondue, a few things come to mind instantly. For most people those few things are cheese, chocolate, and oil. A fondue pot gets very hot and can keep the contents of the pot warm. People put creamy cheese or smooth chocolate in their pots, then have different foods to dip in and enjoy. There are dozens of good recipes for this.
