Gourmet International - Fonde - The Fine Art of Fondue, Chinese Wok & Chafing Dish Cooking 1970
Another oldie but goodie that needs to be adopted at Books, Books & More - Adopt a Book for only $2.00 plus shipping.
Guests get acquainted in a hurry at fondue parties. They sit around small tables each with its own fondue pot and relax quickly as they become absorbed in dunking, swirling and cooking tasty bites in a communal pot. The food is eaten and the process repeated as long as food and appetites last. The cheese fondue is the first and probably the most famous of the fondues. Now there are scores of other favorites, meat, fish and seafood ones, the delicious dessert fondues and an endless number of appetizers, nibblers and snacks. All can be quickly cooked and enjoyed by guests.
This book will give you tips on what kind of equipment will be needed, the difference between electric and flame type, forks and plates. You'll find recipes for everything from meat, appetizers, desserts and even fruit as well as what wine to serve with each. But there is more... you'll find fun recipes using a Chinese Wok and Chafing Dishes at your parties too.
Measuring 10 1/2 x 7 1/2 x 1/4 (approx.) and containing 64 pages, this hardback book was copyright 1969 with this copy being a 5th print in 1970. On a scale of 1 - 10 with 10 being 'like new' I rate this copy's cover a 6, it does show some use wear but the pages I rate an 8. They are in great condition.
