Classic Cheese Fondue – Throw Back Thursday

It’s another vintage recipe! Who remembers fondue parties? Back in the 1970s they were really popular!

But fondue dates back farther than 18th century.

Swiss families used the last bits of cheese and wine with stale bread and had a warm meal by the fire. Back in the 1930s the Swiss Cheese Union had a campaign to get more people in Switzerland to eat cheese. They still enjoy a fondue pot together and consider it a meal.

This tasty dip was first introduced in the USA at the 1964 World’s Fair in the Swiss Alpine restaurant. It gained popularity when the cheese industry pushed the consumption of cheese with recipes and photos of the dripping cheese at parties. And Americans followed the trend. By the early 1970s, everyone had a fondue pot (or two).

And the fondue has evolved from the early cheese and wine to chocolate and other sauces.

In some cases, there is even a pot of hot oil to cook meat before you dip. There were even restaurants (that still exist) that served only variations of the fondue (which is French for “to melt”).

So today I offer you the classic cheese fondue. Serve it up as a party appetizer or enjoy it as a meal (like we did). It’s fun and delicious!

Caramelized Onion Flat Bread Pizza

We like pizza at our house, but we like it different. My husband likes massive amounts of cheese, pepperoni, anchovies and anything else he can find that looks good. I like it simple. Just a touch of cheese, some caramelized onion, maybe a few veggies, and sometimes some pepperoni (I like the less greasy turkey pepperoni – he likes the full fat pork!).

So how do we make it work? We use flat bread and we each put our own pizza together! Here’s the recipe for one of my favorites! Continue reading
