    I live in Canada. When a good friend from university went to Boston for a master’s degree, I was anxious to visit. My memory, which could be skewed, says that I was there 5 days and we ate 9 meals in restaurants. (is that even possible? No matter!) One meal was a chocolate fondue with fruit. Delicious, decadent and not regretted. Thanks for the memories!

    We have a big fondue party every New Year’s Eve. Our kids look forward to it every year and have threatened anarchy if we don’t have it!

      Robin, I love that! My parents made New Year’s Eve so special for us growing up- it’s totally still one of my favorite holidays. I love it that you’re doing the same for your family!

    Love this! Planning on a fondue party for valentines day… and strange question…. but what brand is that pretty red fondue pot? I’d love that one!!

      Cheryl, I love the fondue-for-Valentines-Day plan!
      And (sadly) that fondue pot was given to Goodwill when we moved overseas and got rid of 90% of our stuff. Wish I could check for you. 😉
      I will totally be checking your blog for fondue party details, friend!
