Fondue for the family


During the holiday period over Christmas I decided to have fondue for one of our desserts.  It has been decades since I last had fondue at home so it was going to be an enjoyable experience.

Our Fondue burner was bought in the seventies from a homeware shop called the French Kitchen in The Boulevarde in Canberra.  On the next level above the shop was the restaurant of the same name.  The burner is made in Switzerrland and has stood the test of time.

      I think the recipe may be one that I got from you. I also remember the Steam Boat dinners you did. You have always been an inspiration with your cooking.
