Why Not Fondue For Two This Valentine's Day?

Romantic and Sexy

Why Not Fondue For Two This Valentine's Day?

Here is an idea for Valentine's Dayinstead of spending lots of money in a crowded restaurant, why don't you make a romantic dinner at home? I find fondue to be the ultimate and cozy treat in the winter. Plus, there's no cooking since it's all done on the table, and the setting is so romantic and sexy.

Here's the best recipe to make a Swiss-style cheese fondue from scratch:

300g grated Gruyère cheese
300g grated Emmenthal cheese
1/2 cup white wineI suggest a wine from Alsace, such as Reisling
2 oz vodka or kirsch
1/4 cup crunchy bacon (optional)
10g rehydrated porcini mushrooms (optional) 
1 branch of rosemary
Fresh ground black pepper

 Put all of the ingredients in your fondue pot and let the cheese melt over medium heatmixing constantlyuntil you get the perfect creamy texture. Transfer the pot to your fondue stand and enjoy with pieces of bread and freshly cut vegetables.

The tradition says that if your bread (or veggie) falls off your fork, you have to kiss the person next to you :) Fun, fun, fun! 

And why not go for a chocolate fondue for dessert, with a nice glass of sparkling wine! 


Amazing Creamy Kale Salad Recipe


Amazing Creamy Kale Salad Recipe

Who thought we would ever see these two words in the same sentence without a catch 22?? Usually the word creammmy means yummmmy, but it also means fattttty!!!

Not this time, all 5 ingredients are healthy:

Toasted nuts

No oil, no cream or any other dairy products. In fact, it is the avocado that creates the perfect creamy dressing texture, and the lemon juice keep it fresh and green.

 Start by washing your kale leaves and shredding them into a bowl.

 Then grate a carrot, add half to one cup of unsalted toasted nuts (pistachios, walnuts, or even pumpkin or sunflower seeds).

 Throw in your avocado (peeled and cut in half) and squeeze the juice of one lemon.

 With your hands, mix it all together until the avocado blends perfectly and coats all kale leaves of its creaminess. Season with salt and pepper to taste.    

Note: this salad is even better when it is prepared in advance.

So yummy, you’ll want to eat it all but if there is any left over, unlike any other kind of salads, it will keep very well until the next day.

Enjoy as much as you like!!!
