Fondue is the ever-amazing art of dipping fruit, cheese, cooked meat, cake, bread and whatever else takes your fancy into warm melted cheese or chocolate. The very first fondue recipe is found in a recipe book published in Zurich, Switzerland in 1699. It calls for a blend of melted cheese and wine in which you dip bread. By 1875, fondue was billed as a national dish of Switzerland but it was really in the 1930s that fondue really took off, heavily promoted by Swiss Cheese Union. Fondue became popular in the U.S. during the mid-1960s after American tourists discovered it in Switzerland.
