History of National Chocolate Fondue Day
Chocolate Fondue is one of the best party desserts as it is a delicious and enticing experience. Celebrate National Chocolate Fondue Day on February 5 by inviting your friends over to dip fruit, cookies, and marshmallows in melted chocolate.
The fondue was originally a melted cheese dish that originated in Switzerland as a way of using and serving hard cheeses. The word "sauce" is derived from the French verb "fondre" which means "to melt", which is the best way to describe the process of turning hard cheese into a paste that you can dip into noodles.
The first known recipe for cheese sauce dates back to 1875. At that time it was presented as a national dish of Switzerland. Chocolate fondue was invented much later. In the mid-1960s, Swiss restaurateur Konrad Egli started serving chocolate fondue at his restaurant to promote Tobleron chocolate.
Chocolate fondue is a great thing for a dinner party. Its rich and delicate flavor appeals to children as well as adults. Foods that can be dipped in molten chocolate include fruits and berries (e.g., strawberries, grapes, banana slices, tangerines), cakes (cookies, crackers, muffins), Rice Krispies Treats, marshmallows, etc.
Of course, the secret of a good chocolate fondue is in its ingredients. For the best flavor and texture, use high-quality baking chocolate as it is said to melt well. Some people add some rum or kirshwasser to the melted chocolate for a little extra flavor.
I'm sure there's been chocolate fondue forever but now it has its own day. A day full of dedication! There's nothing wrong with celebrating just one holiday! That's what we tell ourselves during the winter holidays, so why not now? Makes perfect sense to me.
What exactly is a marinade, you may ask? Fondue is defined as a dish in which small pieces of food are dipped in a hot sauce or hot cooking medium such as oil or broth. Even the drawing makes my heart skip a beat! It doesn't have to be just cheese as people think and the prize goes to whoever is the first to put a chocolate bar in their fondue!
There are good restaurants around the world that are making a name for themselves with fondue. If you have one in your city or town, I would make time to stop by today in honor of Chocolate Fondue Day. If there aren't any marinades near you, you can go to your favorite search engine and pick up a few recipes and turn your dining room into a sauce heaven. Just invite some friends and choose your skewers and have fun!
How to celebrate National Chocolate Fondue Day
The only real way to celebrate National Chocolate Fondue Day is to indulge! As mentioned before, you can do this at any good restaurant in your area where they value their marinades, or at your home. If you're going to try the fun with fondue, you'll need to make a list of the things you'll want to get your hands on.
Of course, you'll need your pot of marinade. There was a time when most couples would get at least one of these in their wedding gift pile. It's a good thing the sauce pot is making a comeback! Once you have the pot, you need to decide what your sauce will be like. For us today it was easy since it's National Chocolate Fondue Day, I bet you know you need some good quality chocolates.
Now you just imagine! You can take fruit, bread, snacks like cookies or even something sweeter like marshmallows to dip into that guilty sauce! Arrange them and then you go! Get together with your friends and join the celebration of National Chocolate Fondue Day!
