This was easy and wonderful! I took it to a fondue party and it was loved by all. The only change I made was to use sherry instead of white wine. I just love the smell and taste of sherry with shallots and cream- YUM! I also used half and half and it turned out great. I used canned crab meat and of course fresh would have been better, but it was still great. I made this a few hours in advance and was able to re-heat it in the microwave and then poured it into the fondue pot. I served it with blanched broccoli and cut up crusty french bread, so good! Thanks, will definately make it again!
