This is my first fondue cookbook and I am just in love with it. Finally I can have the fondues that they make at the Melting Pot without having to shell out some major $$$$.

First, the book is really well made. It's hard bound, and stays open to the page you want quiet easily. It also has a built in ribbon bookmark to easily mark the fondue your making.

Second, Although I don't care for their little notes about what people say about how great their restaurant is - I did love the little notes throughout the book about the history of fondue, or about the different cheeses you will be using, or even about dipping etiquette.

Third, They give you such good directions. At the beginning of the cheese fondue section they have step by step section with pictures for each step, that applies to almost every cheese fondue you will make. I found it really helpful, and now I understand why I have had some issues with fondue in the past! So far I have made the Garlic and Herb Cheddar Fondue (OMG yum! I also added about twice as much green goddess dressing, because I liked it so much). I also made the Feng Shui Fondue, and "The Original" Chocolate Fondue. All turned out just amazing. As others have noted - I had trouble finding Butterkase. But I spoke with an expert on cheeses at my grociery store, and she instead recommended for me to use 2 very different Fontinas in the Feng Shui. (I used Carr Valley Fontina and substituted the Butterkase with Cademartori Fonti) I think an alternative cheese could easily be used in any one of the three recipes that call for Butterkase if you have trouble finding it. Other then that - all of the ingredients are easy to find and get ahold of. I'm making the Goat Cheese Fondue next! Yum!

This is awesome! I can't belive how many receipes they have provided, it's all in there. They even have drinks, salad dressings and marinades. I am so excited to start using this. All the cheese fondues look awesome. If you love the Melting Pot, you won't be disappointed. I would have purchased this book for the Wisconsin Trio Cheese fondue alone, and was amazed at what other recipes they included. I did make the Wisconsin Trio with success. Had a little trouble finding butterkase cheese - but you should be able to locate it at a larger grocery store that sells Boars Head in the packaged cheese department.
Coupons in the back - 3. 1 for free product (wine/garlic and chocolate) 2 others to use for a night out.

I was very surprised to see in this cookbook how many recipes they shared directly from the menu. In fact, I am not quite sure if they left anything out of the book that isn't on the menu. They have everything from cheese, meat, dessert, marinating, sauces. This is by far, my favorite cookbook!

Well, I'm addicted to making fondue now--this book started something that can't be stopped. It gives GREAT instructions, great advice. They give you great coupons on the back of the book, too... Which you'll never use, because you're gonna be amazed when you start making fondue at home how easy it is. BUT if you actually use the included coupons, the book sort of pays for itself. There's just a couple of things that irked me...

1. I had to go to the website to see what the hell the Melting Pot uses as the dippers. That was easy enough to do, but if it was in the book, it would have been easier. (FYI: Melting Pot Dippers for Cheese Fondue Include... Pimpernickle, Rye, French/Country french breads, occasionally little snackumms pickles, apples, broccoli/cauliflour, celery, carrots, occasionally sausages, (sometimes it depends on the special). For the dessert, they'll be dipping marshmallows dipped in both Graham Cracker Crumbs and others dipped in oreo crumbs, pound cake, cheesecake, brownies, bananas, strawberries, etc).

2. They didn't have my favorite Melting Pot Recipes. They didn't have even the cheddar-cheese fondue recipe, I had to find one somewhere else. I would have also liked them to include their regular cesar salad they way THEY do it, and I would have liked the entire Alpine Special Night Out, my favorite, which they don't have ANY recipes of. Most of the recipes in the book, in fact, I've NEVER seen before. And they didn't have their terriyaki marinade or dip recipe in there, which was disapointing, because that's also one of my favorites...

So, they're definately missing stuff, but--as I said, the pictures are GREAT and inspiring, and the recipes they DO have are absolutely perfect in every way. They give you the REAL recipe.

I took off one star, as we will probably realistically use only about half the recipes in here. But this book is a nice complement to all your favorite Melting Pot recipes. It's a bit incredible that they are just putting their restaurant secrets out there... but many thanks to them! We will still, however, go to Melting Pot and enjoy their restaurant, as our book came with about 5 coupons to enjoy side items that don't expire until December 2017.

Much of your success with this book depends on your overall comfort level with making fondue and the quality of your fondue pot, so if you aren't happy with initial results, don't give up and try to troubleshoot. Some recipes do have a little bit of initial light prep/cooking involved - we knew this before we got the book. We had to try a couple times and now love everything we make. So much so that we decided to go on a diet today...
