    This tasted really good, and all my guests raved. BUT the texture was not right. The cheese would not melt properly, and I ended up with a sort of sauce on top, congealed cheese on bottom mess. Since I was having a casual get together with good friends the appearance was unimportant, and the taste made up for it. I wouldn’t make this for an “everything must be perfect” event though!  -  29 Sep 2008


    I really liked this. Slightly more traditional value than regular fondue. I wasn't really sure if the tomatoes were supposed to be totally mixed in or chunks. It tasted great, anyway.  -  29 Sep 2008
