Do you love fondue? I will freely admit, it is one of the few things I have never made for myself, even with how much I cook. For some reason, I have always been intimidated by the thought of making it, even when I did have a little fondue pot. Now that it is becoming more mainstream (and I’m missing visiting The Melting Pot), I’ve found myself considering making fondue at home again. I mean, it seems much more fun and approachable doing at home, rather than paying the expensive price of going to a nice restaurant, right? When I was asked if I wanted to review The Fondue Bible: The 200 Best Recipes by Ilana Simon, I knew this might finally be my chance to try making fondue at home!
