Cheese Fondue on the wood stove

It was cold, we were tired and hungry.  Dave started a fire in the wood stove and I was rummaging for something to eat.  We had Gruyère, some Emmentailer cheese and a baguette from the weekend.  I shredded the cheese, added some garlic threw it in my cast iron pan and stuck it on top of the wood stove to melt.
The cheese went from this...

To this, in no time flat.

Warm, bubbly deliciousness.
We had apples, bread, cheese and some wine. The fire was warm, the cheese was melty and delicious.  It was the perfect quiet night while the kids were at the movies.  I think we'll buy the kids a movie gift certificate and send them on their way again this weekend.

  1. That is such a great idea and how very romantic!!!

    1. It was delicious, but you know Dave...nothing romantic about it as far as he was concerned...maybe if I add bacon?

  2. Hi Toni,

    I am currently researching an article for Alaska magazine's "Feast" department and was wondering if you'd let me use your fondue photo as an illustration. Please contact me at

    I'd really appreciate your help with this.
