Below is the whole spread: In front is the desert plate (strawberries, bananas, apples, and Trader Joe Rice Krispie treats to be dipped in chocolate), the cheese plate (broccoli, cherry tomatoes, and bread to be dipped in swiss/gruyere), and the meat plate courtesy of Jessie (salami, prosciutto, and pickles).
Putting the fun in to fondue. My favorite picture of the night with the expressions on everyone's faces.
Daniel perfecting the the broccoli dip and twirl.
Finishing off the night with chocolate covered strawberries (or in my case, just strawberries-- oh Lent)
Oh yeah, the finale was also very good as well--or as Christian would say, fierce! I was happy with the season overall and cannot wait for Top Chef. Maybe I should start thinking of party ideas for that finale now.
[Note: Thank you Trader Joe for providing 90% of the ingredients, they were all fresh, delicious, and cheap. Thank you roommie for going the cheeserie to find that last piece of the puzzle. Thank you to Alex for letting me borrow your fondue pot.]
