The title of this fondue is amusing. A lovely fondue with surprising flavours. The name of this fondue should be changed to The Great White North Fondue as its primary ingredient is Canadian sharp cheddar. Remember to use a Canadian beer in the recipe as well. Give yourself and your guests a treat. Then again I may be wrong in assuming the name of the fondue is not appropriate. A good disguise...cheers to the canucks!
I made this for a football party and everyone loved it. I used regular beer since I didn't have any non-alcoholic. My dh doesn't like traditional swiss fondue, but loved this. Was very easy and I will make it again. Hokiegal.
