Not the best choice Aug 6, 2006
The recipes are complicated and not a good fit for fondue parties nor family friendly. High calorie too...
Can't wait to have a fondue party now! Dec 28, 2001
Last year a friend bought me a fondue set. Finally got the cookbook this year and was pleased to find the recipes fairly simple. This book offers various fondue recipes from cheese, chocolate, to Asian fondues with meat, etc. It explains each and different ways to fondue very well. I suggest this to anyone beginning their journey into using their fondue set!
Very diverse cookbook....... Jul 22, 2001
....A friend bought me a fondue set for my anniversary, so I picked up this cookbook expecting the usual cheese and chocolate fondues. Well, not only did I get great typical fondue recipes, this book contains varieties of fondue that are completely new to me!! There are "bacchus" fondues in which meats are first marinated in a variety of alcoholic beverages, "Asian" fondues which are great so far, and "burgundian" fondues. Overall a very good, very intriguing cookbook!!
