Whether you’re creating a romantic environment for 2 or a festive party for a group, this recipe goes together in a flash and never fails to please. Instead of dipping, you arrange a colorful selection of nibbles on a plate and pour the fondue over the top. Time and money saved! For maximum impact, offer a mix of tart-sweet apples, creamy potatoes, roasted squash and bright veggies in addition to the quintessential artisanal bread.

Ingredients

Preparation

Toss the cheeses with the flour. Place the wine and shallots in a heavy pot over medium heat and bring to a light simmer. Stir in the cheese a little at a time until the mixture is smooth and all of the cheese is melted. Add the remaining ingredients and keep warm until ready to serve.

Arrange your favorite accompaniments on individual plates for each guest. Just before serving, drizzle the fondue over the top. (I like to heat the plates to keep everything at a cozy temperature.)

Notes

Accompaniments for dipping (use any combination):

  • Roasted potatoes.
  • Fresh apples and pears
  • Roasted root vegetables
  • Roasted winter squash
  • Broccoli, raw or steamed
  • Cauliflower, raw or roasted
  • Roasted mushrooms
  • Roasted Brussels sprouts
  • Roasted asparagus
  • Artisanal breads
