Ode to Fondue – Our family fondue recipe.

QUA19

Oh fondue, how I love you! We first met many years ago, a family tradition on Christmas Eve. My love for you has never wained, and I have learned much about your ways as time has passed.

We love to share with friends and family, a perfect one pot meal. Oh fondue, how I love you! Recipe: 1 clove of garlic- halved 1 bottle of the cheapest beer you can stand to […]
