Did you know that fondue is over 400 years old? Written records about it dated back in 1699 when a version of the dish calling for the cheese, wine and bread for dipping appeared in a cookbook published in Zurich, Switzerland. It has incarnated in the 18th and 19th century with various recipes. In 1930s, it was promoted as a Swiss National Dish, and later on in 1960s, this taste has gone through the tables of the North Americans.
You can taste this classic Swiss dish right here at the Old Swiss Inn. Who can say no to a meal which brings people together: sitting around on a hot pot and dipping bread cubes into a melted Gruyere and Emmenthal cheese, laced with Kirsch for that extra kick!
