Oh goodness today is my lucky day!  A day that celebrates CHEESE FONDUE!  April 11th is National Cheese Fondue Day, a time to fire up the fondue pots for food, fun and good conversation.  You all should know this southern California pinup’s absolute love (obsession) with cheese.  Add  in a fun dinner where you get to share the experience of eating together and I am completely sold.

I remember eating fondue when I was little, and I have my own fondue pot now that I break out for fun dinners with friends, or a romantic dinner with someone special.   A chance to enjoy the wonderful-ness of cheese, and having to get in and really share your dining experience with people is my idea of a great meal.

To celebrate, Emmi Roth USA, the US division of the premier Swiss dairy company, is sharing the must-know fon-DO’s of fondue – everything from tips for when you dip to the new ways to do fondue.

There is no better reason to snuggle up and enjoy one of my favorite types of dinners, fondue, than St. Valentine’s Day. It’s usually chilly out at the time, and why not use that as an added excuse to dip goodies into warm chocolate or cheese and share it with your snuggle bunny.

This Valentine’s Day let’s put a twist on traditional fondue. I have a cheese and a chocolate recipe for you, along with three cocktails, one of which should be able to please the palate of most anyone. I have a fruity, a carmel and even a Lucid Absinthe based cocktail.

Do I have your attention now?
