Have Fun With Fondue
Broth-Based Fondue -- This type of fondue is equivalent to a main meal. It's similar to soup shared in a communal pot. You can use different broth recipes to match your dippers. You can dip thinly sliced beef, chicken, pork or lamb and wait a minute or so until your meat is cooked. Shrimp, fish and seafood also make great dippers. If you're vegetarian or vegan, you can also dip vegetables such as mushrooms, cabbage, lettuce, tomatoes and potatoes. Once your dippers are cooked, you dip them into assorted sauces to add to the fondue experience.
Hot-Oil Fondue -- This type of fondue was really popular in the 1970s. As the name indicates, hot oil is placed in a communal pot in the center of the table and guests dip small cubes of meat into it until cooked. They then let the meat cool before dipping it into one of the various dipping sauces that accompany the meal. Vegetables can also be deep-fried in the hot oil but they should be free of water to avoid splashing.
These five types of fondue are not your only options, but they are a good way to introduce your friends and family to a fun and interesting way to share good times and good conversation over great-tasting food.
