I bet you thought the headline said a “Fondant Fancy”… yep that little garish coloured cake – alas not…something far better in fact!
It is a classic time of year to enjoy this Alpine classic of hot melted cheese with bread dipped in and we felt it was very worthy of another airing.
We will have two tables of 6 people on each night – you will have to share but what could be more convivial than such a feast.
We will kick it all off with a simple bowl of lambs lettuce salad (Nussli in Switzerland) topped with walnuts and chopped egg.
Then the main event will be the hot melted wine and cheese fondue with bread cubes – some little extras like chopped ginger (an innovation and tip given by a local Swiss resident) or a smoked chipotle paste will give it all another flavour dimension.
To finish it all we will then serve a light Orange & Polenta cake with a generous dollop of Greek yoghurt. A tangy sweet finish after the excesses of the wine & cheese. We will provide a little glass of Muscat de Rivesaltes with this as well
Finally tea or coffee along with some Swiss Chocolate as a petit four will complete the meal.
It should be a convivial night and a great way to make new friends. Just remember it is important not to bring a red wine (it clots the cheese) or drink ice cold drinks (it will also clot the cheese) – a full etiquette on the whole procedure will be provided on the night.
