Re: Drink with cheese fondue?

Any Valaisan will tear up your resident permit if you drink French Chardonnay with your fondue ?!? for sure. Might even do so for the Appenzeller

Re: Drink with cheese fondue?

Never heard of the black tea thing either. Sounds a little odd, but at the same time everyone happily drinks jasmine tea in Chinese restaurants, so why not.



Regarding the wine: is the practice to use cheaper wine to make the fondue and then drink another, better wine along with it, or to use the same wine to prepare the fondue and drink during the meal? Asking just to avoid faux-pas.

Ha, well I don't make a song and dance about it, but I can't abide the traditional Swiss whites, fechy, fendant etc. Wishy washy is probably the best (polite) description I can come up with.

Instead we drink quite a lot of a particular Aldi Chardonnay d'Oc, which at eu2.99 a bottle is almost criminally cheap, and compares well, in our own blind tastings, with some half-decent Chablis up to around the 15eu mark (in France, of course, so probably chf25 or so here).

I wouldn't bother using something different, especially as we start off with cheap anyway. But even if it were not cheap, the glass or so (for two portions) you're putting in the fondue is not really significant compared with the amount you're drinking, around 20% of the total for most people, that it's hardly worth bothering about, in my view.

But the Swiss tend to drink awful wine with it anyway (see above) so I don't think they're likely to complain whatever you do.

Re: Drink with cheese fondue?

I tried drinking tea with Fondue. Didn't work .

Every time I eat fondue I get the worst stomach ache. It's like a solid rock in my stomach. So, after three tries I gave up eating Fondue . It's only raclette for me now.
