Expert Tips

Although French bread is delicious with the fondue, you could use another hearty white bread instead. Sourdough, Vienna and Italian bread would all work in this recipe.

In French, the word fondue means "melted." Popular in the 1970s, fondue is making a comeback, particularly for relaxed entertaining.
