      This is a simple recipe that I tried over the holidays. I especially loved the taste of the carmalized shallots. We tried the sourdough baguette and potatoes as suggested. I found I did have to add quite a bit more wine as mixture was very thick. This is a wonderful easy recipe for entertaining.

      I had never made fondue before and followed the recipe exactly as written. It was pretty easy and turned out great! We did use the red potatoes as well as the bread for dipping. In addition I sliced up a granny smith apple to try with the fondue, that was also good, but would be better with a cheddar fondue. I didn't have any pears or I would have tried that as well. Thanks for this recipe, I will definitely make it again!
