Host a Fondue Party
Looking for an excuse to throw a party or just gather friends for a night of laughter well I have just the thing for you...A Fondue Party! I actually have 2 fondue pots...I know you are shocked but I had a party a while ago and everyone had so much fun that I thought it would be fun to share this idea with you. The best thing about a fondue party is how easy it is to pull off. All you need is a fondue pot (call your Mom if you don't have one because I am sure she does...who cares if it's the '70s-looking avocado-green thing she's had in the cupboards all these years). Then, just prep a few ingredients and let your guests do the rest.
Fondue Party Menu
Start with a cheese fondue. Next prepare a fresh, green salad dressed with a delicious vinaigrette to pair with these simple dishes. If you like, you can serve the salad European-style -- after the entree, to help cleanse the palate before dessert. If you need an appetizer or something in between, try a simple spread of a French-style pate, sundried tomato spread, and baguette slices. For the entree, choose your meat (steak, chicken and seafood) accompanied by homemade dipping sauces and vegetables and for the grand finale (aka the dessert), wash out the pot, fill it with chocolate Fondue, and continue the cook-your-own fun.
To add an extra element of fun have everyone come dressed in their best 70's outfits.
The best thing about this party is the social aspect of it all...everyone is involved in the cooking of the meal. If you have not had a fondue party I encourage you to give it a try at least once. It's very groovy!
