Did your mother have a fondue pot? Did she pull it out of the closet, oh, maybe once a year, to celebrate some special occasion? Well, that was then, and this is Not Your Mother’s Fondue. Author Hallie Harron offers a decidedly different take that will have you reaching for your fondue pot time and time again – not just for special occasions. And lest you think the fondue pot’s repertoire is limited to cheese and chocolate, this book demonstrates – deliciously – the versatility of this sometimes-neglected appliance, with simple yet sophisticated recipes for saucy fondues, broth-based fondues, and bourguignon-style dippables and dunkables. (Of course, cheese and chocolate fondues get the Not Your Mother’s treatment here, too.) Make every day fun and festive with easy, interactive, up-to-the-minute fondue!
