For Dipping:

  • 1 day-old baguette cut in cubes (non-classic options are rye breads and for more rustic options you can experiment, and don’t forget to share with #picdin)
  • green apple, cubed
  • broccoli or cauliflower, lightly blanched

Bon Appetit.
Chef Notes: Our version of simple family fun, this brings memories of my time working in Switzerland and enjoying a fondue fromage in a brasserie in downtown Lausanne.
A classic starter for a meal or for a get-together event. Cheese fondue is originally from Switzerland or France, a mix of phenomenal cheeses.
Wine Pairing: Riesling or Pinot Noir
Juice Pairing: Ginger Spice
