I first experienced this fondue at a popular chain restaurant. I've been trying to make it at home ever since. This is the closest I've come and it's always a big hit! Enjoy for a romantic dinner for 2 at home or prepare a larger quantity for a dinner party. Either way, we rarely have leftovers! Dip chicken, steak, veggies, etc.

Cook's Notes:

If you're using an electric fondue pot, heat the vegetable stock on medium in Step 1. If you're using a fondue pot that requires a Sterno(R) fuel source, partially cover the sterno can so that the fondue doesn't get too hot too quickly.

While your fondue is simmering, prepare your dippers. Cut vegetables, potatoes, meats, and any other dippers into bite-size pieces.

Place your dippers in the fondue pot using skewers. If you use shrimp or other seafood, it will cook quite rapidly (i.e. 1 to 2 minutes) whereas chicken and steak will take a little longer. We like to just put the vegetables into the broth and fish them out when they're tender.

Decided to make this for a very special Valentines Day fondue dinner and it was delicious! I made this exactly as instructed and then dipped slices of a prime filet and some medium sized shrimps. I think we've found an annual Valentines Day tradition. Read More

I made it for one of our fondue dinners. It was amazing and cooked a variety of meats and veggies with amazing flavor. My four year old loved the shrimp cooked this way he asked for it again two nights later! Read More

This had great flavor. We left out the mushrooms as too many were not a fan. We cooked steak asparagus cauliflower fingerling potatoes and broccoli. Will make this again. Read More

Made for a delicious Valentine's Day treat for two. I cut the wine in half and used half chicken stock, half veggie stock. Like another reviewer, I needed to make some extra broth to refill the fondue pot. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

It has a similar taste but I followed the recipe exactly and the wine was a little over bearing. Will add a bit more vegetable stock. We do a full melting pot meal with shrimp, steak chicken ravioli and lobster and we needed to refill this quantity once during cooking Read More
