What is Fondue?
Fondue is a communal dining experience originating from Switzerland, traditionally involving a shared pot of melted cheese or chocolate. Each participant uses a long fork or stick to dip items like bread or fruit into the pot, creating a shared and interactive meal experience.
To make fondue suitable for a vegan diet, cashews, non-dairy milk, and nutritional yeast help to mimic the rich, cheesy taste. With chocolate fondue, the recipe is easily modified by using dairy-free chocolate and substituting the regular milk or cream with a plant-based alternative. For a fondue chinoise, veggie broth is used.
