52 Weeks of Cooking – Week 7: Love-inspired – Cheese Fondue

15 Feb

This sounds and looks really good, doesn’t it?  A mixture of white wine, cheeses, and spices into which you dip bread, veggies, and cheese.  What could go wrong?

Well first, we realized that our fondue pot was not really made for cheese fondue.  It was a Hershey pot that you’re supposed to use a tea light with to melt the chocolate for a chocolate fondue.  So Adam ghetto-rigged a heat source that worked out rather well.

The other problem?  It was disgusting.  Seriously.  The mix of the sweet wine (it was a dry white, but still sweet) and the pungent cheeses was just revolting to me.  Adam really liked it, though. Go figure.  I used this recipe from Tyler Florence, but I would honestly say, “Don’t bother.”

Hubby’s rating: 4.5 out of 5.  Weird.

My rating: 1 out of 5.  Gross

Difficulty rating: 2.5 out of 5.  It was really easy to make this really gross fondue.

    Hmmm. We made fondue with a friend last week. Her recipe called for similar cheeses, but just a good ole beer instead of the wine and brandy. It was delicious. I bet it was the wine.

    With cheese fondue beer is almost always the better option. A good dark or stout beer is great!
