Expert Tips

In French, the word fondue means "melted." In gastronomy, a fondue is a recipe cooked and served in a heated pot right at the dinner table. Cheese fondue and chocolate fondue are popular in the United States. In vogue in the 1970s, fondue is making a comeback, particularly for relaxed entertaining.

Havarti is a pale and creamy Danish cheese marked with small holes. Its mild, slightly tangy flavor makes Havarti a popular sandwich cheese.

Sprinkle chopped fresh chives over the cheese mixture in the fondue pot. Garnish the platter of roasted vegetables and bread with long strands of chives or sprigs of another fresh herb.
