Fall, Fondue, Wine, and You!

Posted on 9 September, 2019 at 18:00 Comments comments ()

Ahh, the fall season.  It reminds us of the crisp fall days in Switzerland where fondue dinners orginated and were the norm during the change of the seasons, and year-round, too.

This season, come on up to Tahoe to enjoy what the locals' call the "Quiet Season" when the golf courses still in full swing, the trees turn their magnificent colors, hiking is "the thing to do every day," and the crisp fall air just begs for a night enjoying fondue with your family and you!

For our fall blog, we thought we'd turn back time and give you a little history about the dish that has made La Fondue so popular for so many years.  To do so, we're now sharing the official WikiPedia history of this famous dish!

The earliest known recipe for the modern form of cheese fondue comes from a 1699 book published in Zurich, under the name "Käss mit Wein zu kochen", "to cook cheese with wine". It calls for grated or cut-up cheese to be melted with wine, and for bread to be dipped in it.

However, the name "cheese fondue", until the late nineteenth century, referred to a dish composed of eggs and cheese, as in la Chapelle's 1735 Fonduë de Fromage, aux Truffes Fraiches; it was something between scrambled eggs with cheese and a cheese soufflé. Brillat-Savarin wrote in 1834 that it is "nothing other than scrambled eggs with cheese".[11] Variations included cream ("à la genevoise") and truffles ("à la piémontaise") in addition to eggs, as well as what is now called "raclette" ("fondue valaisanne").

The first known recipe for the modern cheese fondue under that name, with cheese and wine but no eggs, was published in 1875, and was already presented as a Swiss national dish.Despite its modern associations with rustic mountain life, it was a town-dweller's dish from the lowlands of western, French-speaking, Switzerland: rich cheese like Gruyère was a valuable export item which peasants could not afford to eat.

The introduction of cornstarch ("Maïzena") to Switzerland in 1905 made it easier to make a smooth and stable emulsion of the wine and cheese, and probably contributed to the success of fondue.

Dipping Into the History of Fondue

Posted on 18 August, 2015 at 18:30 Comments comments ()


If you are like most of those who tuck cheese away in the fridge for a bit too long,

you’ll be able to appreciate this little bit of a blog about the history of fondue.

Tales tell us that the love of cheese dipping started back in the late 1600’s when early peasants created the recipe to use up old hard cheese and left over bread. Others beg to differ that it was more of a cultural transition that led to new ways to enjoy the fine cheeses found throughout Europe. Whether the art of fondue actually started in Switzerland or France is still up for a good bet, we don’t really mind either way.

Moreover, what most people think of as fondue today (melted cheese with bread cubes, cooked beef in oil, or melted chocolate) are not the fondues of the past. Melted cheese, typically Gruyere, was added to eggs, which were then scrambled. This suggests that the original fondue was actually a form of cheese soufflé.

Since the 1950s, the name "fondue" has been generalized to other dishes in which a food is dipped into a communal pot of liquid kept hot in a fondue pot: chocolate fondue, in which pieces of fruit are dipped into a melted chocolate mixture, and fondue bourguignon, in which pieces of meat are cooked in hot oil; all of which we offer for our guests year-round at our fondue restaurant at Lake Tahoe.

Taking the trend on our own, our chefs at La Fondue on Lake Tahoe’s north shore now offer fondue with broth options– which have been a big hit!

With the cool temperatures on their way in the High Sierra, we’re seeing more locals and visitors alike dipping into our fondue restaurant in Incline Village for a delicious change of pace to the dinner meal.

Come see our new menu items and enjoy a little bit of history with us soon!
