Do people throw Fondue Parties anymore?

Maybe they call them something else now.

They made a brief reappearance amongst the hipster fraternity. Vegan cheese if you please!

No double dipping

I occasionally do one with my family. My mom has a fondue pot so why not. We've also done Bagna Cauda, which I enjoyed even more than the cheese fondue (though we cheated and put cream in the sauce as well)

Has anyone used fondue as lube?

That picture is very much like life in my village. Five people gathered around a single pot of food.

It's very popular in Fon du Lac, Wixconsin.

I do every once in awhile. Besides the bread, all the vegetables make it healthy.

In my family we do it like fat whores. Vegetables, some, but also potatoes, little cocktail weiners, pieces of beef and chicken etc as well as bread.

No, hot pots are the rage now.

Numerous people have hit me in the head with a fondue pot, OP, so I avoid them these days.

My family had fondue parties I remember fondly. Why not throw one for fun?

Where are the ashtrays in OP's photo?

Well, you know it’s a groovy happening because someone has a guitar.

Great way to spread the herps, get second degree burns and possibly lose an eye. Partay!

So cheesy.

People throw meat into my cheesy fondue pot 4-5 times a week. I just love it!

Many prefer ripe cheese fresh from an xtra thick intact 9-incher!
