National Fun With Fondue Month

National Fun with Fondue Month is observed every November and encourages everyone to try their hand at making this melted cheese dish, commonly served in a communal pot. During the 1960s and 1970s, fondue parties were all the rage, but that trend has fallen off over the past few years.

However, this month has a real chance of bringing it back. After all, the only things that are really needed for a fondue party are some cheese, a fondue pot, some bread and/or fruit, and plenty of friends. So, let’s all come together during the month of November and attempt to bring back the fondue party.
