Midnight Snack: Fondue and Its Ilk in the East Village

New York Zachary Feldman 1 comment

Chances are high that if you're in any semblance of a relationship (real or imaginary), the days ahead are going to be filled with some combination of hand-holding, adoring stares, and breathless whispers. A guy or gal is bound to get hungry after so much endless romance, and one of the sexiest ways to refuel is fondue—or the Swiss art of shared cheese-dipping—and its many cultural counterparts. With a reputation for late nights and a number of different cuisines represented in the 'hood, the East Village offers a convincing argument for getting cheesy with the apple of your eye. More

Chocoholic: Bourbon Chocolate Fondue

Sweets Yvonne Ruperti 1 comment

Fondue is not for crowds. It's for a group of friends, or a romantic tête-à-tête, hovering and dunking over a warm bowl of this intoxicating potion. The word fondue comes from the French verb fondre, meaning "to melt". Sounds just right for Valentine's Day. More

Mexican 'Fondue' with Chorizo and Tomatillo Salsa

Serious Eats Blake Royer 12 comments

It didn't take long to convince my wife that we would indeed be eating a bowl of bubbling cheese for dinner. It would be stuffed with crumbled Mexican chorizo, I explained, then spooned into tortillas doused with a vibrant tomatillo salsa. It would be ready in about 15 minutes—as simple as grating some cheese, cooking the chorizo, and mixing them together to bake. Just think of it as a Mexican-style fondue ("fundido"). More

Video: Stephen Colbert Plays Fondue Pong at the Vancouver Winter Olympics Swiss House

Erin Zimmer 2 comments

Stephen Colbert visited the Swiss House at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, where he challenged director Manuel Salchli to a bout of fondue pong. It's just like beer pong except instead of cheapo frat party beer, you try to land the ball in a pot of scalding fondue. And following traditional pong rules, this means the loser has to chug back the cheese ooze. More

On a recent visit, Carey and I squeezed in both Palace Kitchen for dinner and Dahlia Bakery for breakfast within about ten hours of each other. We were that serious about experiencing the Tom Douglas juggernaut that Ed (and... More

Where to Get Fondue in New York for Valentine's Day
