Fondue parties are a bygone art form. Hitting its a peak in the 60’s, they went out of style with conversation pits and shag carpets. Yet fondue has enjoyed a comeback in recent years, and for good reason: it’s a fast and easy way to entertain friends and family in the most delicious way possible.
In case you were ever thinking that I was cool or hip or edgy — that on the weekends I spend my free time throwing shabu shabu parties like the folks at Tasting Table or, like, butchering whole animals — I’m going to go ahead and tell you to throw a fondue party.
