With winter coming up and the holidays approaching, we recommend breaking out that dusty fondue set for some good old-fashioned fondue party! Chocolate fondue with assorted fresh fruits is great, but serving gourmet cheese fondue will certainly satisfy the cheese lovers while creating a truly rich and flavorful experience.

Give your holiday fondue party a twist by trying this Comté Fondue recipe and adding Sauvignon blanc as your choice of dry white wine. And if you’ve never hosted a fondue party before, check out our Full Fondue Guide. Enjoy!

Fruit and Cheese Symphony

Friday, April 27th, 2012

The season of cool, natural and light snacks is upon us. Nothing could be better than the gourmet combination of ripe, sweet fruits with cheese on a spring sunny day!

“Pair cheese and fruit for a healthy snack or easy appetizer when entertaining!” says cheese lover Nadia Muna Gil in her Cheesaholics Anonymous blog. “The salt in the cheese” – she continues -  “is balanced by the sweet in the fruit, and the crunch of the fruit contrasts the suppleness of the cheese. In short, your salivary glands will think they died and went to heaven.”

We couldn’t agree more!
