Are you fond of fondue?
April 11 is Cheese Fondue Day
Fondue is a melted cheese dish that was first mentioned as far back as Homer’s Iliad from around 800 to 725 BCE. Scholars described it as a simple plate of goat's cheese, wine, and flour. However, the earliest known recipe for this quintessentially Swiss dish comes from a 1699 cook book published in Zurich, which calls for grated cheese to be melted with wine, and for fresh crusty bread to be dipped in it. And that's essentially what fondue is. Except today there are numerous delicious variations on this bubbling pot of melted cheese. So, are you fond of fondue?
