November is NATIONAL FUN WITH FONDUE MONTH!
Join CHEF FEIST from Cedar Lane Elementary School in creating an Apple Cider Fondue.
Fondue derives its name from the French word “fondre” which means “to melt.” Three types of fondue have developed over the years and each has flavor profile all its own.
Cheese – The oldest fondue style and believed to have been developed by the Swiss, cheese is versatile. Blend a variety of cheese choices with white wine and dip vegetables, meat, and pieces of bread to have a complete fondue experience.
Oil – While the French originally developed this savory fondue option for steak, we are only limited by our imagination. Add seasonings, dipping sauces and your choice of protein and the fondue celebration begins!
Chocolate – When the United States discovered fondue, they added dessert. Dip fruit, pretzels, or cake bites. There’s really no limit to what we will fondue.
1 clove of garlic halved
1 cup of apple cider
1 teaspoon of your favorite hot sauce (optional)
13 ounces of blended cheese shredded (Emmental Swiss, Gruyere cheese and cheddar)
1 tablespoon of cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 tablespoon cinnamon sugar (mix 2 teaspoons sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon)
2 apples cut into slices
½ loaf of French Bread cut into cubes
Method: Rub garlic on the bottom and sides of the saucepan then leave in pan add 1 cup apple cider. (remove garlic optional)
Then add hot sauce and seasonings, nutmeg, cinnamon let simmer. Then toss cheeses in bowl with cornstarch. Add cheese to apple cider small amounts, stirring and it will all blend. Pour into fondue pot and keep warm.
Use skewers to dip your sliced apples into the fondue pot and swirl on the cheese. Don’t drop your apple or bread or you will have to kiss the person next to you.

👉 School Nutrition Manager Highlight 👈
Last week, LCPS intern Amy, had the privilege of training with Karen Sopko, School Nutrition Training Manager at Riverside High School. Food Safety is a top priority at LCPS and Karen demonstrated the method she uses for calibrating her thermometers every day to ensure that all foods are cooked and cooled to the appropriate temperature.
Karen has been a Nutrition Manager at LCPS for 10 years. Her favorite part of being a trainer for other nutrition staff is seeing people grow professionally, accomplish workplace goals, and demonstrate the values of the LCPS nutrition department. She attributes her school cafeteria's success to her focus on customer service and serving top quality food.
