Caquelon - Loose fondue potsFondue is an originally Swiss dish that has become known in various forms. To make it, you only need a selection of cheeses, some dry white wine, and a suitable fondue pot. The fondue pot needs to be thick enough to protect the cheese from being burned, and easy to clean. A good fondue pot is thick and broad, so multiple people can dip their food at once. Fondue is a social way of sharing delicious food.
