A Word On Food: Fondues


Those of you who listen to my show know I’m from the Midwest originally.  The north country above Chicago.  In the colder months a dish like fondue would not have been uncommon nor unwelcome while sitting around watching football while the snow flies outside.

Several years back I was asked to go to a bookstore in Chi Town and sign my then new cookbook.  They asked me to bring some food along.  A cookbook section of a bookstore never has a stove, so I had to think of something they could eat and I didn’t want them to eat something cold.  Not in December!

I prepared my Spanish Cava Fondue recipe of ours.  They audience warmed right up!


Now it’s time to hit the ‘Listen on WLRN’ button at the top to hear the remainder of my show. ‘A Word On Food’ airs on WLRN every Saturday around 8:30 a.m. at 91.3 and also 91.5 on the radio. I want to thank so many of you who tell me in person how much you are enjoying the show!
