My First Fantastic Fondue Experience @ The Melting Pot – Addison

Okay…I must say, Fondue Rocks! I have never had fondue before this week…Amazing, but true!

fondue @ The Melting Pot in Addison, TX - meltingpot.com/dallas-addisonWhile we are in Dallas for a few weeks, we always take advantage of the rich array of amazing restaurants in the area.

My husband has wanted to take me to The Melting Pot in Addison, Texas on Beltline Rd. since we were first dating in 1998, and even though we have lived here through the years, we have never actually gone…until Monday!!!

It was a swanky, stylish restaurant with a romantic feel. What fun we had dipping our little tidbits into molten cheesy deliciousness, Coq Au Vin that was out of this world, and oozing, delectable Chocolate Delight!

If ever you are in Addison, Texas (a suburb of Dallas), you have got to try The Melting Pot…You’ll be so glad you did…

…But for the rest of you, who will not be visiting us here in the Lone Star State, this is a great alternative at home…

Chantal 3-c.  Fun Fondue Pot with Forks, WhiteFondue – Non Alcoholic
By Anthony Tripodi

Do you want to share your love of cheese fondue with your children? Or did you just find out that one of your fondue party guests doesn’t drink alcohol? Well then it’s time to learn how to make non-alcoholic fondue. Non alcoholic fondue is great for kids and other people who for whatever their reason, have an aversion to alcohol. The white wine that provides the unique flavor to fondue can be substituted with apple cider. Apple cider will give you the great taste that you expect from fondue without the alcohol.

The story of how fondue came about goes something like this. People living through long winters in the Swiss Alps had to worry about their food supply. They ate what was on hand. At the end of the cold season, usually all that was left was hard cheeses and wine. So with some experimentation and innovation, those ingredients were combined with crunchy bread to create the first fondue dinners.

So take a lesson from the people of the Swiss Alps and use what you have on hand. Don’t worry about fondue lovers complaining that your fondue has no bite to it. Using apple cider instead of white wine is a completely acceptable solution. It taste great and will add a nice flavor to your fondue. If you use apple cider in your fondue, you will never miss the white wine.

Non-Alcoholic Cheese Fondue

1 cup Apple Cider (to mix with cheese)

1/4 cup Apple Cider (to mix with cornstarch & mustard)

2 teaspoon Lemon Juice

1 tablespoon Onion (finely chopped)

3 cups Cheddar Cheese (shredded)

1 tablespoon Cornstarch

2/3 teaspoon Mustard Powder

White Pepper (to taste)

* Heat the cider, lemon juice & onions on medium low heat in your fondue pot

* Slowly add the cheese while stirring

* Mix cornstarch and mustard in 1/4 cup apple cider

* Add mixture to cheese

* Add white pepper to taste

Note: if too sweet, add more lemon juice

To Dip:

Italian Bread (or any crusty bread) cut into bite-sized cubes

Vegetables – Broccoli, Cauliflower, Bell Peppers, Mushrooms, Potatoes, etc.

Pita or Flat Breads
