WOW,Very Good Mimi, We enjoyed the Fondue. Different than what we had, had before. I will be using this Recipe again,My DH loves fondue.
I SECOND THAT WOW! This was sooooo good! I'd never made fondue before, and this was very easy. We are lucky where we live, as the store has a great variety of cheeses, so getting the exact ingredients was no problem. Thanks Mimi! Abbey
Loved this recipe just as it was - also tried it without the shallot and added a bit of cayenne. Best cheese fondue I've had.
