In planning for tonight’s class, I was thinking about doing a traditional Christmas holiday meal from another country, ideally a country in another snowy mountain region. I soon began reading about Switzerland and found that, while the country has no specific “traditional” holiday meal, one of the most popular Christmas meals all over Switzerland is Fondue Chinoise. It is enjoyed for its social nature and because it allows everyone to more or less create their own meal.
What is Fondue Chinoise? it is a Chinese Hot Pot. Chinese Hot Pot is easy to prepare and serve and great fun to eat. Tonight we will make and enjoy Fondue Chinoise!
