Family Fondue! 5 Cheese Fondue Recipe & Trudeau 24-pc. Set Review

Two of my best friends took me to Simply Fondue once in NY in 2011 and since then I loved it. Prior to that I never had a fondue night. Then one of these friends got me the kit as a housewarming gift in 2013. I don't use it all the time, but it's great for entertaining. I can't tell you all how much I love it! It's so low maintenance, easy to set up, and big enough for a family of four to six. All you need is the sterno gel that you scoop out and put in the bottom of the double boiler. Some people say it's hard to contain the temperature but I find that you just need to figure out how much water you'll need to put inside the boiler per the amount of chocolate or cheese you're melting. Also frequent stirring helps. You can add a drop of milk in your chocolate or cheese to keep it moist if you notice any thickening.

For the new year we made family goals and spending even more time together doing things as a family was one of them. We decided we'd do fondue nights, or even lunches. We loved the White Chocolate with strawberries and bananas. This makes for the most thoughtful and treasured housewarming gift you could give someone. I plan on buying 2 or 3 more sets for parties.

My Five Cheese Fondue Recipe


8 oz Four Cheese Mexican (shredded) 
2-3 oz Vermont sharp cheddar
2-3 dashes of garlic 
1/4 cup dry white wine 
2 dashed dried oregano and cayenne pepper 
1/4 cup whole milk 
2 tbs. grass-fed butter

Dippers: Organic Apples, Raw Organic Broccoli, French Bread, Chicken wings (optional) 

Mix all the ingredients in the bowl and stir. I put approx 2 cups of water in the boiler. This recipe will give you this much Cheese Fondue, you can eye-ball it and add more shredded cheese if needed:
