Chef Notes: Our version of simple family fun, this brings memories of my time working in Switzerland and enjoying a fondue fromage in a brasserie in downtown Lausanne.
A classic starter for a meal or for a get-together event. Cheese fondue is originally from Switzerland or France, a mix of phenomenal cheeses.
Wine Pairing: Riesling or Pinot Noir
Juice Pairing: Ginger Spice
