Fondues and Fon-Don'ts

Fondue is the classic Swiss dish of melted cheese with wine, served in a communal pot with all kinds of delicious treats for dipping and perfect for this week's chilly nights. The North Park Farmers' Market has all the ingredients you need, and here are a few tips to make your fondue fun:

DO start with great cheeses. Stop by Taste Cheese and pick up great cave aged Gruyere from the mountains of Switzerland, and maybe a tub of their signature Shredded Blend, or try Springhill Cheese Company’s Old World Portuguese.
DO serve crunchy vegetables like bright purple carrots, crisp celery and French radishes from J.R. Organics; romanesco cauliflower from Suzie’s Farm; or zucchini from Valdivia Farm.
DO include some roasted vegetables like Brussels sprouts, parsnips or mushrooms from Proios or Kawano Farm.

DON'T forget a loaf or two of fresh bread from Belen Artisan Bakers for cubing and dipping.
DON'T be afraid to add your own touch to the flavor, perhaps by using apple or cherry cider from Smit instead of (or along with) the traditional wine or Kirsch.  
DON'T skip the salad - a simple plate of farm fresh greens with a squeeze of lemon and a splash of California Olive Oil is all you need to compliment your fondue. 

Ready, Set, Dunk!
