Italian Fonduta – The 15 Minute Cheesy Delight

The French / Swiss have Fondue, the Italians make this instead, apart from The Alps Mountain range being between the two countries, there’s similarities yet difference between the two dishes. This is still effortless to make and absolutely delicious to eat. A superb dish to cook up when you have guests, perhaps also a dish that’s a great sharer, allowing you to chat, dip, eat…

What To Have With A Fonduta?

Enjoy this Italian Fonduta with some of our exquisite filetto. Filetto is almost fat free and so succulent, it will melt in the mouth just as easy as the cheese. You can add other ingredients to dip into your melted cheese, this recipe is merely how to create the base. You could use any of our charcuterie with this recipe, it’s a subjective choice for the consumer.
