Although fondue first became popular in the US during the 60s and 70s, it has enjoyed surges periodically since. There are hundreds of cookbooks on the subject, and hundreds of different recipes for serving both sweet and savory varieties. Many homes have a fondue pot or two laying around in the basement or garage. It’s time, now to get those pots out (or purchase a new one) to try the innovative recipes in a modern fondue cookbook, The New Fondue Cookbook: From Savory Ale-Spiked Cheddar Fondue to Sweet Chocolate Peanut Butter Fondue, 100 Recipes for Fondue Fun!. This book has raised the bar on entertaining with fondue, and the recipes are unique and worth trying.
While the cookbook doesn’t include a lot of history or informational content, it does contain dozens (actually 100) recipes, most mouthwatering. The book is divided into two sections: Savory Fondues and Sweet Fondues. So there is plenty of both for any hostess to serve fondue as the main dish or serve it for dessert.
Since fondue is always a casual affair, bringing guests together to cook (oil and broth based fondues), or dip (cheese and dessert fondues), it is an excellent way to entertain. This cookbook has great new ideas, and also includes trendy dishes such as Shabu Shabu. The dessert fondue ideas are amazing.
The recipes are written in standard form and are easy to follow There are notes at the beginning of some of the recipes with information on ingredients, or suggestions for successful serving. There are also safety instructions to insure you have a party with fresh and safe food. Fondue is usually simple to put together, so most of the recipes are also easy. Many of the types of fondue are photographed, but the cookbook could include more; most cooks want to see a picture of every dish.
If you like entertaining, and want to do something different, you’ll want to pick up this fun cookbook and serve fondue.
