Fondue is back....really?
So this AP story claims that fondue pots are back. Does anybody really think so? I haven't completed my wedding registry yet (the wedding's not till September, so plenty of time), but I can guarantee one thing that will NOT be on my wish list: a fondue set. Please no. My parents last dragged theirs out in the 1970s, and after much effort spent dusting it off and using it once, I think it went to Goodwill. The only time any sort of fondue made sense to me was when my Swiss German friend Marcel hosted us in his home - in Singapore - and made raclette. It's a little different from fondue, but it's part of his culture. The only melted cheese I want is on a grilled cheese sandwich, made in a toaster oven - which I still need to register for.
