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!Read more ›
Coupons in the back - 3. 1 for free product (wine/garlic and chocolate) 2 others to use for a night out.
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.Read more ›
If this review helps you to decide whether or not to buy this product I would appreciate your vote as helpful below. Thanks!
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...
