There's something unique about sharing a fondue with family and friends around the table.
Everyone is relaxed - including the host - and the pace of the intimate meal is as leisurely as you want.
Fonduing is also a fun and easy way to entertain and is more sociable than your usual dinner party. And the nice thing is that you don't have to wait for a special occasion.
These sumptuous recipes go well beyond the standard duo of cheese and chocolate - although the traditional dishes such as Classic Swiss Cheese Fondue and Classic Beef Bourguignon are included.
International cooking styles present a plethora of fondue possibilities such as Mongolian Hot Pot, Japanese Sukiyaki, tempura, spicy Indian curries, Mexican bubbling cheese fondues, as well as simmering Middle Eastern, Thai and Italian inspired broths.
Unlike the fondues of yesterday which were never exactly low in fat, many of these recipes have a healthier twist, with fresh foods swished in flavourful broths instead of oils. But never fear chocolate lovers, there's an extensive compilation of dessert fondues in the book, including various types of chocolate paired with complementary flavors such as maple, cherry, coffee, peanut butter and mint.
Also included is a dizzying array of other sweet sensations - from caramel to rum, butter and key lime.
Ultimately fonduing is all about fun and relaxation.
For the host, a fondue party requires only a little shopping, chopping, marinating and grating.
After that, it's the guests who do the 'work': cooking, dipping, dunking and devouring!
