Say cheese! Actress Ali Larter is sharing her fondue recipe with Us Weekly, and the dish was created to pair perfectly with Meiomi sparkling wine, making it the ideal food item to serve this holiday season.
Made with three cheeses – Gruyère, Emmentaler and bleu – the cookbook author’s Fa La La Fondue is ridiculously easy to prepare and is perfect for dipping apples, pears figs and other sweet fruits. If you’d rather pair your cheese with carbs, go ahead and cut up a loaf of French bread into bite-sized pieces and prepare to dip away.
Described as a “guaranteed crowd-pleaser,” this fondue will leave your party guests wanting more.
