Foodie me, foodie you?
I am a Foodie. I love food. Always did, but my gastronomical senses (?) were awoken in my twenties thanks to life in a predominently Italian-populated town (hello Griffith) and then meeting an adventurous husband-to-be. One of the things I learned through these experiences, and through travel in Europe to Mexico and Egypt, is that simple is best.
(I had always thought this mantra applied only to makeup and maths…)
Anyway, a decade ago Mr Incredible and I travelled through Switzerland – he worked there for a while, and I joined him for a little trip/test drive of our relationship soon after. It was amazing – we managed to survive each other and fall FURTHER in love with food. Among the dishes we adored in this part of the world was Fondue.
Have you ever had it?
In Australia, it tends to be regarded as a fad that took place in the 70s – but of course, to the Swiss, it is a celebrated national dish. And considered how freaking COLD it can be over there near the Matterhorn, one can see why. Melted cheeses in white wine and garlic, with fresh crusty bread dipped in.
It’s evil and heavenly at the same time.
Simple and seductive…
Dip, dip, twist, twist…
Oozing naughtiness and deliciousness…
Is your mouth watering… like mine was two nights ago when our Swiss neighbour invited us over for dinner?
I am still recovering from it’s richness but I may have to wipe the drool from my chin just posting these pics up…
What’s your favourite foreign dish?
Have you ever tried fondue?
Do you own a fondue set? (Go on, admit it!)
