This week, I was challenged by Brian to come up with a simple, delicious, romantic dinner. We each took to the kitchen to make different Valentine’s day dishes, from both the male and female perspective. Chaos ensued.

Just kidding.

Making food for people is something that I really enjoy. The time and effort that goes into cooking for others is really one of the biggest gifts of gratitude. On Valentine’s Day, we show our love through making red velvet pancakes to start the morning, chewy red cookies to snack on with friends, and by the time it’s dinner, the convention generally is to eat out. Yes, you could spend over $100 for a four-course meal at the Melting Pot with your date. Or you could skip the crowded restaurants and opt for a candlelit fondue dinner, made entirely by you. And no, you don’t need any special equipment or extra time.

Cheese Fondue

Prep time: 25 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
Total time: 35 minutes

Servings: 2

Ingredients:

12oz cheese of any kind (I used swiss and gouda). Tip: The less processed the cheese, the better the fondue. Aged cheeses work especially well.
1 cup white wine or vegetable broth with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
½ cup chopped vegetables of choice (I used mushrooms and spinach)
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon flour

2. In a saucepan, melt butter over medium heat and sauté garlic and vegetables until soft. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

3. Pour in your choice of liquid and bring to a simmer.
4. Slowly add the cheese mixture, working with small handfuls and stirring constantly until everything has melted.

5. Transfer the contents into a fondue machine if you have one. If not, keep in the pot and serve warm.

Dipping suggestions: Apples, chips, bread, or broccoli florets.

Chocolate Fondue

Prep time: 0 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Total time: 15 minutes

Servings: 2

Ingredients:

1/2 cup melting chocolate

Directions

1. Boil water in a double boiler. If you don’t have one, boil water in a pot.

2. In a separate pot, add the chocolate. If you are not using a double boiler, hold the pot with the chocolate over the water without setting it in the water (otherwise pressure will build up and it could explode).

3. Stir occasionally until the chocolate melts.

Dipping suggestions: Fruit, nuts, popcorn, cake, or marshmallows.

Feeling fancy? Try pouring the chocolate in a wine glass and adding a sprinkle of powdered sugar.

Cheese and chocolate, anyone?

Whether you’re serving a cheese fondue as an entree or want a little chocolate to top off your dinner, this (hands-on) dining experience is easy to throw together, customizable, and the ideal meal to serve during a romantic evening for two.

Cocktail: Pop some bubbly
Raise a toast to fine food and good company with flute brimming with sparkling wine what better reason is there to pop that bottle you’ve stashed away for a special occasion? Cheers!

Dinner: Cheese fondue
For a main meal, the delicious chardonnay cheese fondue (shown above) is made with the traditional gruyere cheese – we suggest serving it with chunks of crusty bread, raw or blanched vegetables, roasted or boiled mini potatoes, roasted cremini mushrooms, meatballs, olives, gherkins or cornichons.

Dessert: Chocolate fondue
Of course, it’s not Valentine’s Day without chocolate. So, if you’re planning on setting up fondue for dessert, use our classic dark chocolate ganache recipe. We have variations ranging from s piked mocha or p eanut-butter swirl to white-chocolate.

Serving suggestions: assorted fresh fruit, marshmallows, chunks of pound cake, pretzels, nuts, graham crackers or digestive biscuits

Note: A fondue pot, or caquelon, is essential when making cheese or chocolate fondue. A small flame underneath the fondue pot keeps the mixture just warm enough so it doesn’t separate or seize.
