Fond of the ‘Due’

After a whole stretch of baking, cooking, preparing, cooking some more, and finally stopping on occasion to actually eat, I have to say that by the time New Year’s Eve rolls around, the last place I want to spend quality time is in the kitchen. This is the time of year when we pull out the pots, gather around the table and indulge in that decadent favourite: fondue.
The great thing about fondue is the number of options: cheese fondues, broth fondues for meat and veggies, hot oil fondues and, of course, the ever-popular chocolate version. This year for our family New Year’s Eve dinner, we’re going to have cheese, chocolate and a broth (for shrimp) on the go. Just guess which one the kids are most excited about.

What I like about it is that it satisfies my craving to eat in bites rather than platefuls, and I can create it from a boxed package, or from scratch (if I’m really feeling creative). It’s also a fun way to catch up with the kids around the table in a more casual setting. Pots are pretty easy to find nowadays and fondue fuel is available in most grocery stores. Plus, it’s a great way to use up all those last bits of vegetables, chunks of bread, and old, hardened bits of cheese. So here’s to the ‘Due’, and may you and your family have a Happy New Year!

Do you have a favourite type of fondue? We’d love to hear about it!
