Format: Paperback
Lenny Rice and Brigid Callinan's Fondue starts off with basic ratios of cheese to liquid and starch; tips for holding a themed fondue party; dipping ideas; and notes on various types of fondue pots and fuel.

White not exactly a negative, I should note so you know what to expect from this book that it consists of three different chapters of cheese fondues and one of dessert fondues---no non-cheese main-course fondues. The cheese chapters include some basic cheese fondues, gourmet fondues, and "melted makeovers" or fondues meant to replicate the flavors of such things as pizza. There's also a homemade dippers chapter including such temptations as donut holes and pound cakes.

The flavors were uniformly delightful. The cheese and base combinations worked beautifully. The desserts are delectable. We made both simple and gourmet recipes, and they bowled us over. The boursin and camembert fondue was our favorite of the cheese fondues we made, but the dulche de leche beat everything else simply because, well, it's dulche de leche!

The cheese fondue recipes aren't entirely kid-friendly; the vast majority of them use alcohol as a base, and while of course the majority of the alcohol cooks off, I think most kids would still be able to taste the flavor of it (certainly I could). This is a bit of a shame, as fondue can be great fun for kids. However, you should be able to substitute apple juice for wine or beer in many of the recipes without it affecting them adversely (apple juice is one of their own suggestions for possible bases).

We also had some difficulties with the texture of some of the cheese fondues. They kept separating, which I'm not accustomed to, and the authors' directions for fixing such separation never worked for us.

The book is small and compact and has some decent recipes in it. However the requirement for some specialty cheeses may make cooking some of these Fondues a little difficult if you don't have access to a cheese shop or a good selection of cheeses (as is my case). I was looking for some out of the ordinary recipes and this book has some, but instead of varying other ingredients this book most frequently varies the cheeses used.

This is a simpler fondue cookbook. The meats are cooked ahead of time. I always had problems with recipes where you have people cook their own meat in oil or broth, as that being too complicated for the relaxing evening I want to have with Fondue. This book has great recipes for different sauce dips and suggests 3-4 items to dip in each sauce recipe.
