  1. Vinegar (=chutney) with cheese? Oh boy.
  2. This recipe was great! It was the first fondue I've ever made (I didn't make the chutney) and the instructions were so easy to follow. I used a little more wine than the recipe called for and it turned out great. We dipped little cubes of day-old French bread and it tasted terrific. Quick, easy, and most of all delicious!!
  3. This was very good!RICH!!! I didn`t have time to sit with the family around the fondue pot.So I put it together and tossed it with cooked ziti and baked it!! So every one helped themselves to it when they were home to eat!!It was yummy!


Very busy nanny/au pair, working for a very rich and snooty family, in a very large home, in a very snooty village. Just in case my employer comes here, please don't ask where I am from, or I'll be sacked like the last nanny was. ;-) I take care of 4 gorgeous, and darling kids. 3 girls and a boy. The boy is the youngest (and my favorite). They are great children, very, very active. (Hyper) I love to cook. I guess that's a given, why else would I be here. Part of my job is also to prepare meals for the family. The more they like my food, the longer I get to stay. (just a little joke) On my day off, I usually go out to the cinema or some dance clubs with the other au pairs in this town. That's about it I think.
