This is a live, interactive, hands-on cooking class held online via Zoom. See our event policies at the bottom of this webpage.
Winter is the best time to enjoy hot, oozy cheese in the comfort of your own home, and sparkling wine loves rich, cheesy dishes. In this class we'll talk all things cheese and fondue, melt cheese and wine together, then toast to our new, amazing fondue skills with a glass of bubbles. We'll start with covering the fondue basics from cheese melting science to the battle over which country really has the true fondue recipe. Then we'll make our own fondue and a light salad for dinner, and chat fondue and wine pairing.
Equipment and Ingredient List for this class can be found here.
No need for a fancy pot made exclusively for fondue. If you have a portable burner that you can place in your dining area, that is ideal (think camping stove or hot plate). If not, drag some chairs to the stove and get ready to dig in!
