Can-Do Fondue

By: Diane Kolack

Company coming over?  It's a great time to fire up a pot of molten cheese. Fondue is a classic, sophisticated dish that brings people together-- talk, dip, and enjoy great company. Choose your recipe from some of our favorites and grab  friends for some cheesy fun.

For tradition, you can’t beat Tyler Florence’s Cheese Fondue. Two kinds of cheese combine with garlic, wine and kirsch to warm up your whole party. Need some interesting dippers? Besides bread, sample some bacon-wrapped chicken with spinach, blanched vegetables and apples.

The whole family will love this Tex-Mex Fondue from food.com.  And—don’t tell the kids—it’s got vegetables inside.

Feeling saucy? Buck tradition with Alton Brown’s Fondue Vudu. It packs a flavorful punch with curry powder and hard apple cider that goes great with this savory biscotti recipe from Food2.com.

Michael Chiarello’s Blue Cheese Fondue is sure to impress your guests.  This garlicky dip is complemented by cherry tomatoes and roasted cippollini onions.

And after all that cheese, skip dessert in favor of a sophisticated but simple Cherries Jubilee cocktail, courtesy of Sandra Lee.

Most importantly, don’t forget the cardinal rule of fondue. No double dipping!
