The 70s made us believe that fondue was the ultimate romantic couple's meal. In reality, it makes a fantastic family Valentine's dinner. Everyone chooses their own ingredients for dipping, there's no cajoling the kids to eat this or that, and kids can pick and choose and graze independently- and with their own special stick.
True romance, family-style.
Don't feel constrained by the list of dipping ingredients below. Asparagus, salami, shrimp, tortilla chips, etc. anything goes!
This year, we have snow on the ground for Valentine's. Fondue seems just the right fit.
