If you feel like something has been missing from your life, that's because it has. That void will be filled imminently, by the world's first fondue competition. We can all breathe a little easier now.
Taking place in Switzerland (because where else?), on November 21, the picturesque municipality of Tartegnin will be transformed into a cheese-lover's paradise with an epic display of culinary skill from the cheesemonger-sphere. But for those who can't make it to the Swiss Alps this week, we've selected a wide range of the dreamiest fondue places in the world.
Milk the Cow, in Australia, is one of our selections. There, they take a purist route: "We like to keep our fondues all about the cheese at Milk the Cow," head cheesemonger Laura Lown tells us, "so we focus on artisan cheeses and serve them only with peasant-style bread and nothing else. This shows off the beautiful flavours of the cheese and booze we use." Cheese and booze? Say no more. So when you're snowed in this winter, cozy on up to a pot of warm nourishing fondue and feel all your troubles melt away.
