Fun Facts about Fondue:

  •  Fondue used to be a popular dish for dinner parties in the fifties, sixties and seventies. As the saying goes, “everything old is new again,” and sales of fondue pots are booming, no doubt riding on a nostalgia wave.
  • A tradition says that if a man loses his bread in the pot, he buys drinks all around, and if a woman does, she must kiss her neighbours.
  • Each morsel should be put in the pot only once (no double-dipping) and that the dipping fork be used only to transport the food from the pot to one’s plate, not to eat.
  • The choice of beverage to drink with fondue is specified in several conflicting traditions; some demand that white wine should be drunk, while others specify black tea. Some people drink a shot of spirits during or after the meal. However, a study published in 2010 showed that none of these beverages caused indigestion after eating fondue.
  • In the meantime, fondue continued to be promoted aggressively in Switzerland, with slogans like “La fondue crée la bonne humeur” ‘fondue creates a good mood’ and (1981) “Fondue isch guet und git e gueti Luune” ‘fondue is good and creates a good mood’–abbreviated as “figugegl”
