Fondue Grazing Board

Let’s talk Fondue! Is there anything better that melty cheese? I don’t think so! So when I was chatting with my friends at Roth Cheese on what fun things we could do this holiday season – I wanted to take a regular grazing board to the next level and do a fondue board featuring Grand Cru! Grand Cru is a nutty & melty cheese – ideal for Fondue!! And Fondue is PERFECT for New Years Eve, New Years Day, or really any cool winter night you want an easy dinner or date night.

First thing – use this link to find where you can get Roth Cheese near you. Next, you need to get a fondue pot. I got mine from amazon and I’ll attach the link to my storefront where you can find the one I got along with the heating element you’ll need. (My exact one is currently unavailable but I’m adding one very similar!)

Now onto the fun part! Light the heating element so that your fondue pot will begin to warm. Grate (or crumble) 2 packages of Grand Cru and sprinkle in 1 tbsp flour and stir to combine. Next add in around 1/4 cup of whole milk or heavy cream (or beer/cider). Now add your seasonings. I like to use – 1tsp dry mustard, 1tsp garlic powder, 1tsp smoked paprika, and salt/pepper to taste. Stir to combine and let the fondue pot work it’s magic!! Stir occasionally until it’s smooth and creamy. If your mixture is clumpy – add in more liquid a little at a time and stir until the cheese is melted completely.

Now for your fondue board dippers!! One thing that I really love about @rothcheese (which if I’m being honest – you all know I LOVE everything about them and their Cheese – made in Wisconsin) is that each package comes with pairing ideas making it easy to pair a drink and a meal with each cheese! Here’s what I added to mine – note that some of these things require cooking, so just prepare them how you would normally!

•Chunks/Cubes of Italian Bread

• Cornichons

•Cooked Gnocchi

•Soft Pretzels

•Potatoes (I boiled mine until fork tender)

•Sausage (I used Andouille- but any meat would be great!)



When you assemble your board – keep your food away from the fondue pot itself since there will be a tiny flame you don’t want anything burning or catching on fire! Then pour yourself a cold cider beer and kick back and enjoy!!
