Who doesn’t love Fondue?! We do! I have tried numerous fondue recipes over the years and this by far has been our favorite cheese fondue recipe. And there is so much more to dip in this rich cheese sauce other than a good bread. Try veggies such as broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus and carrot slices, for example. Freshly sliced apples and pears, along with some grapes are also an excellent accompaniment to this delicious cheese sauce. Enjoy!
