What is "fondue"?
A fondue *(f) is a Swiss dish which consists of cheese (usually a mix of Emmenthal and Gruyère) melted with wine (a dry white, such as Neuchâtel), and sometimes a little Kirsch. This mixture is kept warm over a burner (there are special matching fondue pots and burners for this), and each diner spears a cube of bread (from a French or Italian loaf) with a special fondue fork, and dips it into the communal fondue pot.
The word ‘fondue’ comes from the French verb ‘fondre’ which means ‘to melt’.
