Fun with Fondue #53 - Summertime fondue with broth and oil
May 30, 2018
This year is going by quickly and summer is almost here! Time for summer parties and vacations! Hopefully you have something fun planned for the coming months.
Most people when they think of fondue, they think of cheese and chocolate. However, there is so much more to it. To help you get started with broth and oil, this month, we'll cover serving sizes for broth and oil fondue.
Monthly Fondue Tip
Hot Broth and Oil Fondue Serving Sizes
Hot broth and oil fondue is normally enjoyed as a full meal. Because you and your guests will be cooking various meats, seafood and/or vegetables, you'll need to have enough liquid (broth or oil) to make it happen and you should also have dips available, so your guests can add extra flavor to the cooked items.
Cooking Liquid - Broth or Oil
Exact quantities of broth or oil can't really be provided as those are dictated by the size of your fondue pot, but the following guidelines should be helpful:
Dippers: Meat, Seafood and Vegetables
The amount of meat, seafood and vegetables will vary depending on your selection of dippers, as well as how many side dishes you are making. The following quantities should work when serving fondue with a side salad, buns and rice. I always buy enough meat to feed an extra person, just in case.
I always make at least 3 dips to accompany broth or oil fondue. When serving fondue at my house, I pass the dips around and ask my guests to put a little bit of each on their fondue plates (using the compartments that come with fondue plates). That way, we can then move the dips to a separate table and make more room for our drinks and raw meat. My guests tend to use about 1 or 2 tablespoons of each dip. Here is a list of fondue dips you can pick from. Most of these recipes make plenty for 4 to 6 people to share and you should prepare 3 to 5 different dips.
Monthly Recipe Recommendation
Now that you know about serving sizes, you can easily add broth fondue to your menu. To help, I have a full-meal recipe guide.
