I Found Fondue!

It's Autumn here in Sydney and heading towards Winter, not that you'd know it by the fab weather we've been having. Despite the warm days I am starting to think of Wintery food and what is more Wintery than fondue? The warm cheesy loveliness makes me dream of European ski resorts and 70s glamour.

After being on the lookout for a nice retro fondue set for a while I finally found two in the space of a few weeks!

This first one was $8 in Vinnie's, it's never even been used. I love the funky orange and white retro pattern.

This one was $4 in the same Vinnie's (they obviously price by whatever mood they're in on the day). Again, I love its retro look.

I can't wait to get these lovely wooden forks stuck into some nice gooey cheesy fondue. I spotted a recipe book in a shop the other day but had some screaming children with me at the time, I will definitely have to go back and get a copy.

Both pots are cool. If you find a good recipe be sure to share. I have always been curious about fondue and whether it tasted good or not. I like cheese so it has to be good, right? Have fun!!!

Beautiful! I have a bright yellow one a pal gave me -- that her parents never uses way back in the 70s! Yes, the perfect thing to do as the days cool off ....

I love fondue! My fave are chinese fondue (really big here in Quebec) and cheese fondue. The bourguignon kind scare the bejesus out of me, all that boiling oil!

Both pots are really adorable!
