Fondue Party

My friend Lindsay is a real foodie. She's one of those super talented people that you can call up and ask her how to make something totally random, and she'll probably know. Check out her new blog and add it to your Google Reader. I am sure we will all get some great ideas from her.

Lindsay was lucky (and smart) enough to be temporarily relocated to Switzerland last summer for work. While there, she picked up a fondue pot. We finally got around to having a fondue party this past weekend, which was perfect for our subzero temperatures.

Menu:
  • wine and beer
  • green salad with lemon-shallot vinaigrette
  • cheese fondue: emmental, gruyere, kirsch, white wine, and cornstarch
  • dipping items:
    • crusty bread
    • cornichons
    • pickled onions
    • boiled waxy potatoes
    • roasted Brussels sprouts
    • sliced Honeycrisp and Granny Smith apples
  • Meringues
