Cellar Club February 2018

Posted by Nick Savasta on

A communal dining tradition of melted cheese in a pot has no fixed historical point of origin. A winter's meal utilizing old bread and aged cheese seems nearly as old as the Alps themselves. We Americans can point to the "Age of Aquarius" 1960s as the cultural zenith of Fondue. You might've even noticed an appearance of the delicious fare on an episode of Mad Men, so ubiquitous was a Fondue party among the smart set.
