Fondue is an easy winter meal to serve when friends drop by for dinner. All the ingredients can be prepared in advance so you can sit down, and have a cosy, fun relaxed evening with your guests.



Fondue can be enjoyed as an entrée, a main meal or as a dessert. It's a meal best eaten slowly while enjoying time with family or friends, or even a romantic dinner for two. There are so many different varieties, from the classic hot oil or cheese with cubes of meat to the yummy warm chocolate fondue with strawberries.

Use your imagination or try some of these different combinations:

Indonesian

A tasty Fondue doesn't have to be just cheese. For something different make up a pot of bubbling nutty satay sauce. Make spicy chicken skewers which can be dipped into the sauce.

Spanish

Make up a pot of melted cheese, add finely chopped green and red chilli, garlic, onion and mushrooms. This can be served with chorizo as part of your tapas spread.



Italian

This one is more of a dessert fondue. Put some strong black coffee into your fondue pot, add a dash or amaretto and serve with Italian savioardi biscuits, small cubes or cake or brownies. Have a big bowl of whipped cream available for a twist on tiramisu for dessert.

Mexican

Add chilli peppers, cayenne pepper, and refried beans to melted cheddar cheese to give your fondue a Mexican twist. Use corn chips or tortilla chips for dipping.



Dessert

For a fondue dessert you can heat up chocolate which is fantastic, and you can use your favourite white, dark or milk chocolate. You can add a dash of rum or whisky to give your fondue a bit of 'zing'. Another good and slightly different dessert fondue dish is custard. Serve your dessert fondue with a platter full of berries, fruits, marshmallows, cubes of cake or even mini doughnuts.

Remember to have some side dishes available such as a salad and fresh crunchy bread rolls. Include a variety of dipping sauces, tomato, chilli, mustard or chutney. These are great additions to a lovely hot fondue dinner.
