National Chocolate Fondue Day is an American holiday dedicated to this sweet dish that all chocolate lovers are crazy about. It is celebrated annually on February 5th.
Fondue was originally a spicy cheese sauce, in which pieces of food were dipped. The creation of such a dish, with a high degree of probability, took place in Switzerland, at the end of the 17th century.
The creation of a classic fondue served as the basis for further experiments in this direction. The chocolate version of this dish was created by a man named Conrad Egli, who owned a New York restaurant. He decided to diversify his menu and created a dessert version of Fondue.
The first Chocolate Fondue was made with creamy chocolate and cherry brandy. There was a big stir in Switzerland about this transformation of their favorite dish, but Egli was on the right track. The dish has successfully withstood all waves of criticism and has been a success in many countries for more than 50 years.
- The first Chocolate Fondue used Swiss Toblerone chocolate.
- To obtain a bright and deep taste, honey and almonds are used in the preparation of fondue.
- The word “fondue” is of French origin and translates as “molten”.
