CHEESE FONDUE - The classic 70s foodie fad is back!

Yes, Fondue is Back! If you want to know how popular fondue was in the seventies just visit a Good Will store and look at all the vintage fondue sets they have in orange, mustard and avocado!

Mine was orange and I still have it so I'm right back "in the groove" again! See? It pays to keep everything! Frankly, though I wish I'd tossed it so I could have one in stainless steel (anything but orange!) My vintage fondue set is in perfect working order so I have absolutely no excuse - and it is retro so I will not replace it!

Ingredients
1 Tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons sour cream
2-1/2 tablespoons flour
3/4 cup half and half
3/4 cup milk
salt and pepper to taste
3/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese'
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan
Directions:
In a medium saucepan, melt the butter. Remove from heat and blend in the sour cream and flour to make a paste - sort of like a roue. Whisk in the milk and half and half and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to simmer, stir in the salt and pepper and stir frequently until the sauce thickens or about 5 minutes. Whisk in an additional tablespoon of flour if needed for desired thickness.
Remove from heat, stir in the shredded cheese until melted. Pour cheese into a fondue pot and light the tea candle underneath to keep warm - you'd be surprised how many people forget that step! Serve with 1 to 1-1/2 inch cubes of French bread or sourdough, fruits and veggies!

Serve with some of my martini recipes from The Martini Diva and boogie down on the food!
