What’s not to love about that classic pairing of crusty bread dipped in a medley of melted cheeses or fresh strawberries swirled in warm, creamy chocolate?

The recipes in this book offer a range of fondue fare—from hearty favorites like Classic Swiss Fondue and Beef Fondue with Creamy Horseradish Sauce, to broth-based fondues like Shabu-Shabu and other Asian hot pots, which are enjoyed in stages and are ideal for dinner parties. There are also a variety of dessert fondues to satisfy any sweet tooth. You can add flair to this quick party dish with recipes for homemade dippers, or keep it simple with store-bought treats.
