Do you know about Switzerland’s National food?
Fondue became the national dish of Switzerland when the Swiss Cheese Union (Schweizer Käseunion AG) modernized it and campaigned as a way to sell more cheese in the 1930s.
Modern fondue originated in Switzerland and more specifically in the Canton of Neuchatel. The dish consists of at least two varieties of cheeses that are melted with wine and a bit of flour and served communally out of pot called a “caquelon” over a portable stove heated with a candle or spirit lamp, and eaten by dipping bread into the cheese using long-stemmed forks.
Interesting fact :
Don’t lose your bread in the pot! It’s a tradition that if a man drops his piece of bread in the fondue pot, he must buy a round of drinks. If a woman loses her bread in the pot, she must kiss all her neighbors.
