OCTOBER FOODIE GROUP MEETUP >>>
We came across a 1970 Better Homes and Gardens fondue cookbook at our grandma's house. It reads like a commercial on Nick at Nite. Ladies of the household are advised to "experiment with these recipes and you'll become an effervescent, day-by-day fondue hostess." There are special sections devoted entirely to "Pert and Saucy Hot Dips" and "The After Ski Scene." Our mouths watered thinking back to our childhood fondue memories.
Inspired, the Weekly Volcano foodie group Nosh League will dip into the past with a cheese and chocolate tasting at The Melting Pot fondue restaurant Thursday, Oct. 13.
The Nosh League will stab its sharp prongs into Wisconsin Trio Cheese fondue - a blend of Fontina and ButterKase cheese coupled with the rich flavor of crumbled blue cheese, shallots, scallions and a hint of sherry. This will be paired with 2009 Cupcake Chardonnay from the central coast of California.
The League will also enjoy a Dark Chocolate Flaming Turtle fondue - rich dark chocolate, caramel, and pecans are combined and then flambeed tableside. This will be paired with 2007 Ravenswood "Zen of Zin Old Vine" Zinfandel from Sonoma.
As the League dips, Melting Pot General manager Josh Goffin will discuss the history of fondue, explain fondue The Melting Pot way, and talk wine pairing.
In between dips, raffle prizes will be drawn.
Fondue is not just food; it's an event. There's a pleasant communal aspect to the whole shebang. Join us.
