Laura’s one of our cheese whizzes and has created a custom blend of cheese precut and premixed, tossed with corn starch and including directions to whip up a fondue for 2. The fondue mix is equal portions Emmenthaler, Gruyere and Appenzeller with some Fromage de Montagne du Jura thrown in as well. We were thinking of this as a cool Valentine’s treat and are having a special tasting Saturday, February 13 from 5-7 at the Brooklyn wine store of our fondue plus wines to serve in and with it. Laura will be on hand to demonstrate fon-do’s and fon-don’ts. But with the unexpected bounty of snow, maybe now’s the time to snuggle up and dip some bread in hot, bubbling cheesy goodness. Of course if you’re serving more than 2, we can select cheese for you, too.
Speaking of our Valentine’s tastings, make sure to stop by the Brooklyn wine store this Friday night, February 12 from 5-7pm to taste dessert wines paired with “french kisses” from D’Artagnan – foie gras mousse-stuffed prunes dipped in Armangac – a true Gascon original!!
