We have a cheese fondue, followed by a chocolate one. Chocolate is the favourite, hands down.
Our fondue recipes are embarrassingly simple (and might just make a few frenchmen/women squirm).
Cheese fondue: buy a pre-made fondue package from the cheese deli (we like the Presidents' Choice one at Zehr's - we also bought these often in France). There are lots of great recipes from scratch, I'm sure, but we like the taste of this kind. Melt it down. Eat with cubes of cut up baguette and pickles on the side. Some sliced meat, pickled onions, and olives too if you're really feeling fancy.
Chocolate fondue: Get a humongous chocolate bar (we like the Presidents' Choice one at Zehr's - 300 g bar). I use a whole milk chocolate bar and half of an extra dark one. Break it in chunks and melt it on low in a pot on the stove. When it's all melted down, it's not creamy enough for me, so I just add some milk - maybe 1/4 cup - maybe more, but add a little at first and then add more if you need to. The chocolate kind of curdles or something at this step, but just use a whisk and keep stirring it, and adding a little more milk if needed and it should come out nice and smooth. Then dip whatever fruits you like! We like to dip pretzels too.
Happy weekend to you! First on my list this weekend: rest.
