This a spectacular recipe! The shiitake mushrooms were great with the the brie and roquefort. I served this at Thanksgiving for an appetizer and no one could leave it alone. I was asked to make it again for Christmas.

This fondue recipe is perfect! I served it with green beans and grape tomatos in addition to the bread and carrot sticks.
