I met the author on a cruise recently--she splits her time between California and Southern France--and was so impressed that I went right out and bought a copy of her latest book. I love cookbooks, and this one is an instant favorite. Hallie has taken an item that most of us knew with maybe three or four variations, and has turned it into a whole category, which she's organized around what's in the fondue pot: cheese, sauces, oils, broth or sweets. I found the sauce-based recipes particularly ingenious. Do you like Italian food? Mexican? American midwestern? Curry? Mediterranean? You can take a trip around the world with this book. Hallie has deconstructed classic and comfort foods alike--from coq au vin to pizza--and put them back together as fondues. Your favorite pasta dish? Oh, yeah. Puttanesca. Alfredo. You like hummus? Avgolemono? Sweet and sour? Bloody Mary? Bacon and eggs? Seriously. You can eat fondue around the clock and around the year. Every recipe has simple directions, clear explanations, and specific ideas for varieties of things to dip in the pot. And the desserts don't stop at dunking various things in chocolate. What about fruit sauces, caramel sauces, creamy sauces? Oh, my. Beautiful and inspiring.
I copied some of these recipes and took them along to make for my mother and everybody thought they were great! Big favorites were some not-Swiss-cheese fondues like the Camebert (we used Brie and it was fine) and the blue cheese and walnut ones. The saffron broth one was one of the best fish dishes ever.We also came to realize that many of the fondues would make great soups for family one-pot meals. And after seeing how she has created fondues from some familiar dishes, I can see how it might be fun to invent some of my own.
Delicious fondue recipes which offer new varieties of tasty fondues along with bites of food to go along with them! The index lists not only the fondue recipes but the varieties of food that compliments the fondue. For example it might list under the heading for shrimp a tasty dill fondue and it lists by variety of fondue, ie cheese, tomato, ect. The book also provides plenty of tasty pictures to go with the recipes. Happy this is my first fondue book and due to the variety of recipes contained within it will be my only one for quite some time!
Loved the new look at fondue. The recipes were easy to follow and an inspiration to dust off the Fondue pot and and get dunking. Enjoyed it so mu7ch I sent one as gift.
Super happy to get this book...had ordered it for my daughter months ago and was thrilled to find a copy for myself. Great fondue ideas!!!
Excellent shipping and as described. The recipes are traditional as well as recipes that are unexpected. Nice additions to the normal fondue fare. We enjoyed it so much that I purchased it for my friend as well.
I love this book and the recipes puts a whole new spin on fondue for me. I am really enjoying this book, It is good for holidays and special occasions for that something different
Usually everyone enjoys moms cooking but it's always nice any time I learn a new way to " Kick it up a notch "
