Better Homes and Gardens Fondue and Tabletop Cooking


This 1970 edition of Fondue and Tabletop Cooking put together "the most widely acclaimed fondues, from appetizers through desserts", promising that the reader would become "an effervescent, day-by-day fondue hostess." This is the quintessential Book for throwing a retro Fondue party! This is a vintage hardcover book second printing.

To quote BHG "Fondues give menus seemingly new and exciting twists, yet the idea originated long ago. Out of a fervent desire to utilize hardened cheese and bread, the Swiss concocted a mouth watering cheese-wine mixture. The cheese was melted in wine, and the bread cubes were dunked in the mixture. The name 'fondue' came from the French word 'fondre' which means 'to melt'."

"Dinner is easy on the hostess when the main dish is meat, fish or seafood fondue. The hostess sets the table, and the guests do the rest themselves. It's instant fun for everyone."

This informative hardcover cookbook from Better Homes and Gardens would make a wonderful gift. You could include this vintage cook book with an authentic vintage Fondue pot for a very special gift. I have a wonderful Yellow Fondue pot available that looks like the one on the cover of this Cookbook for sale as well. Please Follow this Link
You will learn how to throw themed parties, including an Après Ski party and Japanese Tempura for 6-8 friends. Decoration ideas for the dinner parties are also included. Various methods of table top cooking are explained and discussed including chafing dishes, electric skillets and waffle irons to name a few.

The vintage Cook Book is in very good condition with just minor scuff marks on the corners the most obvious one on the top corner which is shown in the last photo. The binding is nice and tight pages have toning on edges but are in great shape no tears, writings, marks. The book is approximately10 by 7 5/8 inches, 96 pages with index

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

I just love the themed party suggestions here are a couple of great examples;

After-ski Scene:

"Br-r-r-r, it's cold outside - so build a roaring blaze in the fireplace, bring on the fondue, and start swapping skiing tales. If you're not in ski country, plan this "warm up" party to follow some other winter activity."

A Japanese Specialty:

"Guests will enjoy dining at a low table accompanied with plenty of soft floor pillows. Arrange a black or brightly colored lacquered tray at each place setting - they need not match - or, use bamboo placemats. Chopsticks add authenticity, although it is wise to furnish knives, forks, and spoons.

If you like to entertain this book will be a great source for entertaining with vintage style from the trusted source we all know and love, BGH!
