Food Club Fondue

Earlier this week our Food Club had our last meeting of the school year.

Some of you may remember that our Food Club meets once a month and chooses a country or a region or a theme of cuisine and we all contribute a component to make a unique meal.  We've done meals focusing on Greece, India, Thailand, Britain, Brazil, and Louisiana (shrimp boil).

What did we do for our grand finale?  FONDUE!

We prepared a three course fondue meal
  • Cheese Fondue for an Appetizer
  • Broth, Wine and Oil Fondue for the Meat Main Course
  • White and Milk Chocolate Fondue for Dessert

Waiting for the first course cooks to call them inside

The cheese course

I like the lack of focus of this picture, I just wish I had captured more of what was on the plate


Meat Course...
sausage, chicken, steak, shrimp!

There were three meat cooking options - broth, wine and oil

Dive in!

It's really a great social dinner -- everyone huddled around the pots

So good!

One of the best bites was chicken dipped in an egg wash, then a seasoned breading and then cooked in the oil.  SO AMAZING!

Dessert Course -- Chris and I were the dessert chefs

Working on white chocolate and milk chocolate fondue

All ready -- strawberries, marshmallows, rice krispie treats, raspberries, blackberries.  YUMMY!

Oh my!

The white chocolate was a huge hit!
White chocolate, cream, vanilla, marshmallow fluff = Delicious!

Chocolate-covered strawberries!

So much fun!

Fondue is so much fun, and I was surprised at how easy it was to do at home.  Some of the courses were better tasting (in my opinion) than some fondue Chris and I have in restaurants.

Have a wonderful Friday.
