The Gift of Fondue

Along with the approach of summer’s warm weather brings pool openings, and trips to the beach and the ability to spend more time with our family and friends. One of the perfect gifts that you can buy for someone this busy season is a cast iron fondue set.

Originating in Switzerland in order to make use of hardened cheese, the fondue pot has also been used for cooking meat and, my personal favorite, for melting chocolate! Fresh strawberries, bananas, delicious chocolates and five of your closest friends creates the perfect scene for a fondue party.

Even Williams-Sonoma is joining in on the summer fun by creating 1lb. tins of chipped bittersweet chocolate for ideal chocolate melting. Today, when fondue is made so simple, why not take a trip to the store and check out the endless options available?

Before the heat of the summer arrives, go out and purchase your friends (and yourself) their very own fondue set!
