Although it first became popular in the US during the mid 1960s, few foods evoke the Avocado and Golden Harvest-hued era of the 1970s like fondue. I think that they might have been automatically issued to couples as soon as they got engaged. Doesn’t it seem like everyone’s parents had a set at one time? Like anyone in their 60s can say: I got a fondue pot at my wedding. Never used it. I wonder what happened to it?
I imagine that there is a section of the Staten Island Dump dedicated to unwanted fondue pots.
But I LOVE fondue and I love f0ndue photos from the old cookbooks–everyone is happy and wearing sweaters, and the food is beautifully arranged and not at all messy and dripped all over the table and no one is suffering from second-degree hot oil burns or nursing a wound from a fondue fork that got stabby.
And since I’ve mentioned Mad Men–who is stoked for Sunday night?!?! I need to find a recap somewhere so I can remember where we left off. What is going to happen to Don now?
But that is neither here nor there. If you want to see my foray into fondue from back in November 2012, click on the cookbook to the right! It was yummy.
Also, sorry for being AWOL this week–I’ve been ultra-busy at work and my calendar has been filled with social stuff and the gym (I’m upping my work-out schedule since my brother’s wedding is fast approaching and I want to look good in the photos).
I hope to have some good stuff for you next week. I have three DiS! meals waiting in the wings–I just have to write about them!
Everyone have a wonderful weekend. Enjoy the weather!
