How to Make Fondue at Home

February 26, 2015 6:03 pm

Going out for fondue is usually a luxury reserved only for celebrations or special date night dinners, but did you know that it’s actually easy to make your own fondue at home? Use these recipes to create a restaurant-worthy fondue station at your next dinner party.

Cheese Fondue [foodnetwork.com]
Classic cheese fondue is the cornerstone of this trendy culinary style, and this recipe incorporates a blend of shredded Swiss and flavorful Gruyere with a few basic seasonings to create a creamy cheese dip. Keep some fondue forks or wooden skewers on hand to dip crusty bread or blanched veggies into the homemade cheese sauce.

Chocolate Fondue [marthastewartweddings.com]
If you prefer to experiment with at-home fondue for dessert instead of dinner, this simple recipe will surely be a crowd pleaser. Dip fresh fruits or even marshmallows into the chocolate-y finished product.

Garlic, Spinach and Cheddar Fondue [kraftrecipes.com]
For a more casual gathering, this creamy mix of spinach and cheddar with a hefty dose of garlic is simple to make, but just as delicious as fancier fondues. Pair it with fresh veggies and a variety of crackers to avoid the mess of fondue forks. This cheesy dip can even be served in a slow cooker if you don’t own a proper fondue pot.

Globally-Renowned Pizzas are Served at Tony’s of North Beach

February 18, 2015 5:04 pm

Chef Tony Gemigniani doesn’t have a childhood in Italy to credit for his incredible grasp of the cuisine. He’s a California boy through and through, born and raised on an apricot and cherry farm. As a child, he cooked alongside his mother, who used produce from the family gardens in her meals. This gave him an abiding respect for sourcing nothing but the best, and when he entered the restaurant business at his brother’s Castro Valley pizzeria he quickly rose to fame, winning the World Champion Pizza Maker title at the 2007 World Pizza Cup in Naples.

Now at the helm of his own eatery, Gemigniani dazzles diners with his lively, delicious preparations. Don’t miss the Peroni-battered artichokes, which are deep-fried to perfection. As you’d expect, the pizzas—fired in a 900-degree wood oven—are the best in town. Prices are a little high, but the quality is more than worth it.
