Nothing says elegance like a fondue, and in the backcountry, you can take the time to savor this fun, interactive meal. Prep is more complicated than boiling wateróbut barely.
“One of my all-time most memorable meals was a pot of fondue after a snowshoe walk in the eastern Sierra,” says Trail Chef Jennifer Bowen. “This classic Swiss dish is typically consumed during winter, but the satisfying flavors and flexibility of choices in dipping foods make it universally loved as a trail meal. It’s great for kids, who enjoy choosing what they dip in the rich cheesy sauce. (By the time the dish is fully cooked, no alcohol remains).”
