Chocolate Fondue ..getting addicted
Shocola brings rich chocolate fondue on Bastille Festival winter Nordic Village at East Circular Quay. Don’t miss the chocolate cult dish!
There is nothing more decadent than like a bowl of melted chocolate surrounded by cookies, fruits and marshmallows to keep children happy. But this dish is not only for kids, you can also dip your favourite fruit into a rich and decadent adult-only chocolate fondue.
Chocolate Fondue was born in New York in a restaurant called “Chalet Suisse” in 1948. Its owner was a Swiss-born gentleman named Konrad Egli, or (to his friends and frequent guests) just Konni. From the start Chalet was known as a place that honored the culinary traditions suggested by its name: steady, reliable Swiss regional food, carefully handled, with nothing but the best ingredients involved in the process. A Swiss-based chocolate company was looking to launch in the USA an interesting new product just then arriving in the USA from Switzerland — a strange looking chocolate-and-nougat bar that could be broken into individual pieces, each shaped like a little stylized mountain. The stuff was called Toblerone. Konni hit on the idea of using the new product in something equally new and interesting: a sweet fondue. Chalet Suisse is long gone now, nonetheless, the chocolate fondue he cooked up — literally — survives him all over the world. It’s even made its way back to Switzerland… which probably amused him no end.
