5 Benefits of Dark Chocolate
  1. Studies have shown dark chocolate to lower blood pressure
  2. Studies have also shown dark chocolate to lower bad cholesterol (LDL)
  3. It turns women on more than a passionate kissing session (no wonder they want it for Valentine's Day!)
  4. Contains serotonin, a natural mood-boosting anti-depressant
  5. Stimulates pleasure-inducing endorphin production
Now, even though there are several benefits of dark chocolate, as with anything else, moderation is key. Make sure your chocolate delights fit into your daily caloric needs, and try to work your way up to the highest percentage dark chocolate you can enjoy.

Fondue Etiquette

by La Fondue Singapore on Friday, May 18, 2012 at 1:27pm ·
 Fondue parties can be a delicious way to socialize and enjoy a unique culinary experience. If you've never been to a fondue party or restaurant, you may want to get a better grasp of fondue etiquette before you go. Fondue is a specialized food that can be a bit uncomfortable to eat if you don't know the rules. Here's what you need to know about fondue etiquette:
Avoid double dipping into the fondue pot.
Double dipping your bread into the fondue pot is a big faux pas when it comes to eating fondue. What is double dipping? It's dipping the bread once, eating a portion of it, and then dipping back into the pot a second time for more fondue. This is almost guaranteed to be offensive to the other people in your party. Make sure the first dip is sufficient if you want to practice good fondue etiquette.
Use the fondue fork properly.
Since your fondue fork will be repeatedly dipped into the fondue, it should never touch your mouth for sanitary reasons. You can bet your party isn't going to be appreciative if you enthusiastically bite the coated bread off of your fork and dip it back into the fondue pot. It's perfectly appropriate to use a second fork to dislodge the bread from the first fork if you're having problems.
Dip slowly.
Don't make it a contest to see how many times you can dip into the fondue pot. Eat something before you go to the fondue party or restaurant to avoid being ravenous when you arrive. Fondue should be enjoyed in a slow, relaxed manner.
Don't use your hands to dip.
Another fundamental rule of fondue etiquette is to always dip with your fondue fork, never your hands. Fondue is usually maintained at a temperature of two hundred degrees or higher which can result in a nasty burn. Not to mention the sanitation issue. They made fondue forks for a reason.
Don't drop food into the fondue pot.
Accidents do happen but do your best to dip carefully to avoid losing your morsel of bread in the big, hot pot of fondue. An old tradition says that a female who drops her food in the pot has to kiss the man next to her. If you're female, be sure to sit beside someone good looking! If a man loses his food in the fondue pot, tradition says he must buy a round of drinks for the entire party.
If you'll be attending your first fondue event, you may want to prepare a pot of fondue and practice before you go in order to be skilled regarding the rules of fondue etiquette. You'll look like an old pro when you finally get to the party!

Fondue used to be a popular dish for dinner parties in the fifties, sixties and seventies. As the saying goes, "everything old is new again," and sales of fondue pots are booming, no doubt riding on a nostalgia wave.

Fondue history

Fondue originated in Switzerland as a way of using up hardened cheese. Deriving from the French verb fondre, meaning "to melt," fondue was a classic peasant dish. Accounts vary on how fondue was originally created.

Traditional fondue is made with a mixture of Emmenthaler and/or Gruyere cheese and wine, melted in a communal pot. Cherry brandy is added to the melted mixture, which becomes a dip for pieces of stale bread and crusts.

French gastronome Brillat-Savarin mentioned fondue in his 19th century writings. However, fondue really hit its heyday in 1952, when chef Konrad Egli of New York's Chalet Swiss Restaurant introduced a fondue method of cooking meat cubes in hot oil. Chocolate fondue followed in 1964.
