The Melting Pot

smores fondue

Visiting Michigan this week, the one place the family wanted to experience was the interactive dining experience at a restaurant called The Melting Pot. As they say “There’s just something about a fondue pot that invites conversation. Invites laughter. Invites coming together.”

The idea of fondue brought back memories from my youthful days in the sixties when everyone had a pot and tried (pretty unsuccessfully) to have fondue parties.

Fondue is deriving from the French verb fondre, meaning, to melt. Traditional fondue is made with a mixture of any hard cheese like Emmenthaler and/or Gruyere cheese and wine, which becomes a dip for pieces of stale bread and crusts.

Hailey loved the bread and Maya tried everything from the large assortment of veggies, different types of fish, to the marshmallows and fruit dipped in chocolate. It was such a big hit, that it made the centerpiece of our play the next day with “Maya’s Restaurant”.

I wonder whom I can get to take me to the one that is in Pittsburgh?
