Fondue

Fondue has been a tradition in Taos Ski Valley since its founding in the 1950s. Several restaurants here made variations of the dish in the style of Swiss, French, or Italian Alps in the 1960s and 1970s. T
 
he word fondue derives from the French word fonder – meaning “to melt”. The French-speaking canton of Neuchâtel in Switzerland is often credited with creating the original cheese and wine fondue in the sixteenth century.
 
One legend suggests that the dish was fashioned during fighting between Protestants and Catholics, who reached common ground after the two created a communal dish together, one side providing the bread and the other the cheese. However, mentions of fondue have been found in court records from 1,000 years ago. A prototype of fondue using wine, goat cheese, and barley can be found in Homer’s Iliad.
 
Tradition calls for stirring the cheese in a figure-eight motion across the bottom of the pot to both coat the dipper thoroughly and stir the cheese mixture. The cheese-coated morsel is then transferred to a plate, slipped free of the fondue fork and eaten with a table fork.
 
Another tradition says that if a man loses his bread in the pot, he buys drinks all around, and if a woman does, she must kiss her neighbors.
