I adopted this recipe after Mean Chef (IHHDRO) left the site. His original comments were, "A simple party dessert which is a year-round opportunity to use the season's best and ripest fruit." My comments submitted as a review when I first tried it were, "Excellent chocolate fondue. I cut the recipe in half and prepared it with Ghirardelli Semi-sweet chocolate and heavy cream. Hubby and I ate an entire pound of strawberries dipped in this luxury while watching movies tonight." I have made this many times since for just Hubby and I, and for guests. It is a very good chocolate fondue.
I think a fondue is a very romantic casual dinner or wonderful for after the theatre snack served with a robust red wine. For dinner serve with rice & a small salad. Almond Rice Pilaf is a great accompaniment (recipe posted separately ) To cook the meat you must first heat your oil - I do this by heating it to almost boiling on the stove and then transfering it to your fondue burner. Buy good quality meat I recommend only using a fillet. Have at least 3 sauces. If you want to serve 4-6 people just increase the meat to 2 lbs there will be enough sauce.These sauce recipes came from "Soup Central"
Denis and I have had the most wonderful evenings with friends over our fondue pot. Lots of wine and great conversations. Some evenings lasting 4 or 5 hours. Hope you will all try this recipe and enjoy it as much as we do!
Another recipe I adapted from a local fondue restaurant. This is comforting in winter and yet goes perfect with fresh summer fruits. Also a great way to serve dessert at a dinner party. One year for our neighbors for Christmas we layered all the ingredients substituting marshmallows for the marshmallow cream and w/o the cream in fancy gift bags.
We tied it with ribbon and a tag explaining how to finish the recipe. What a hit!!!
