Abigail's Fondue Party
1. Go charity shopping and find a discarded fondue set. They're quite plentiful. Mine fits the bill nicely and represented an investment of just four whole pounds.
2. Think of things that you'd like to dip into a cheesy sauce and buy them along with a bulb of garlic, a shedload of punchy cheese, a lemon and a white wine box so you don't feel cheated when it comes to divvying up the booze. Ideas include cured meats, more cheese, bread, veg and crispy dippy things. Oh and you'll need some of that purple methylated spirits stuff as well.
3. Chop and slice your dippy bits and pieces whilst having a chef's tipple from the wine box. Don't mistake the meths bottle for this.
4. Rub a couple of cloves of peeled garlic around the pot - the inside that is. Then fill the burner with the meths and reluctantly add a generous (sorry!) glassful of wine and the juice of half a lemon to a pan. Warm through and then add 400g of knock your socks off cheese. Let it melt and season to taste.
