How do you Fondue?

19 May
I love the melting pot. and i probably go there too often and spend too much money when i go. but when i tell people they need to try it they get a bit nervous about what to order. so the following is what i usually order when i go. but i have tried almost everything on the menu so if you are wondering about trying something just ask.

Cheese: i LOVE blue cheese so naturally the Wisconsin Trio is my favorite.
Salad: i love the sweet house dressing.
Signature Selection: the Teriyaki and shrimp are my favorite. also don’t forget your entree comes with bottomless veggies (the mushrooms and green goddess sauce are my favorite)
Coq au Vin: i like this cooking style the best because of the added wine and garlic.
Flaming Turtle: there is nothing better than caramel, pecans, and chocolate to dip your bananas  in.

As a special treat here is the recipe for the Wisconson Trio…

Wisconson Trio

1 ½ cups (6 ounces) shredded Butterkase cheese
1 ½ cups (6 ounces) shredded Fontina cheese
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
¾ cup white wine
¼ cup dry sherry
2 teaspoons chopped shallots
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
¼ cup crumbled Blue cheese
2 tablespoons chopped scallions

Toss the Butterkase and Fontina cheese with the flour in a bowl. Place a metal bowl over a saucepan filled with 2 inches of water. You may also use a conventional double boiler. Bring the water to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and pour the white wine and sherry into the bowl. Stir in the shallots using a fork. Cook for 30 seconds, stirring constantly.

Add half the cheese blend and cook until the cheese is melted, stirring constantly. Add the remaining cheese blend in a small amount at a time, stirring constantly in a circular motion after each addition until the cheese is melted. Fold in the pepper and Blue cheese. Pour into a warm fondue pot and keep warm over low heat. Garnish with the scallions.
