Fondue was a favorite at my parents cocktail parties in the 60s, and has made a comeback( at least here in the north)My Mom had a great Oster electric fondue pot, and she made wonderful stuff in it.I now have an electric fondue pot some 42 years later,and enjoy the uses of it quite often.Cheese fondue with bread cubes, chocolate fondue with fruit, and even nacho cheese sauce with chips.

We've started Fondueing again also. Just had some this past Weekend! We have an excellent recipe from an old Fondue cookbook. I'll post it soon.

My 13 year old son has his Buddies over for all night gaming and they love it when we provide them with a variety of Fondue offerings. Watching 5 boys and 4 Fondue pots is pretty amazing. Their parents think were nuts but they love it. It is mind boggling how limited most children s pallets are....Russ

Rumaki is a fancy word for Angels on Horseback--water chestnuts wrapped in bacon, rolled in brown sugar & baked until the bacon is crisp.

^^I am sure there are other recipes, too. But bacon wrappped anything is awesome.

HEY!
Doesn't someone post the results of these poll-thingies when they change them? I can't find the last one (and now I forget what it was, but it was before the 60s food)... hint anyone? Never mind, found it. Thought I'd looked there too...
Thanks [anyway]

p.s. Michael GOOD JOB not putting an apostrophe in 60s... the RF webmaster got that wrong. (There's no apostrophe for years! It's simple plural!)

This Recipe is from the "Fondue- The Fine Art of Fondue, Chinese Wok and Chafing Dish Cooking" (1969)

Alpine Cheese Fondue

Ingredients
1 clove of Garlic
1/2 lb. of Natural Swiss Cheese (Shredded)
1/2 lb. Gruyere Cheese (Shredded0
3 TBSP of Flour
2 Cus of dry White Wine (Neuchatel, Rhine or Chablis)
1 TBSP Lemon Juice (Optional)
Dash of Pepper
Dash of Nutmeg
2 TBSP Kirsch or Cognac
Salt to taste
1 or 2 loves French or Italian Bread

Directions

Cut the Bread into cubes so each cube has a crust edge. Rub inside surface of a fondue pot with Garlic, discard. Toss Cheeses with Flour in a zip bag. Pour Wine in the pot over a low heat on the stove. When small bubbles form on bottom & sides of pot, stir in Lemon Juice and small handfuls of Cheese, stirring constantly with a Wooden Spoon. Continue adding Cheese in small amounts and stirring. Stir in Spices and the Liquer. When cheese is melted, transfer the pot to the serving heating unit. Dig in and enjoy!!

P.S. The quality of the Fondue is directly related to the Quality of the Cheese you use, and a good wine too!

I always thought this appetizer was chicken livers wrapped in bacon, usually with a water chestnut, too. Then after broiling, it was served with sweet and sour sauce.

AP Style uses the apostrophe before the abbreviated year and not in between the year and the ess.

My dad and my first step-mom had this at their wedding reception. I'd forgotten about that.

There's been a resurgence around here for 10 years or so now. The most prolific seems to be "The Melting Pot." I've wanted go, though haven't been. It's said to be an enjoyable experience, but not to be in a hurry, in that it does take a while to get through a meal. Sounds great to me. I cannot wait for an opportunity to try it.

Fondue has become a sort of New Year's Eve family tradition for us, although we use hot oil instead of cheese. Our first pot was Sterno-heated and that didn't work so great once the oil started to cool, but now we have an electric unit.

Not so. The New York Times Manual of Style and Usage says to use the apostrophe: 60's, not 60s. At the very least both ways are correct.

speaking of 60's food ,jiffy pop came out in the 60's .I had seen it on tv & convinced my wonderful.fun grandma to get me some.Once it started really popping we both got scared and went running and laughing from the kitchen...we peered around the corner until the popping stopped then carefully went back in the kitchen , grateful that we hads not been blown to smithereens...one of my many favorite memories with my wonderful grandma. ps years later we got her a micro- do not think she ever used it!!

There are many style manuals. It depends on where you work as to which dictate should be employed.

Sure, but AP does not use the apostrophe and the NYT does. In other words, it's a style choice, not a rule.

With a dash of salt they're not bad for period cuisine, if your colon can handle them.

I also remember my mom making her pigs in a blanket...hotdogs stuffed with pickle and american cheese slivers(hot dogs slit down the middle,long ways, and then wrapped in a spiriling slice of bacon and secured on either end with tootpicks...She then broiled them in the oven...we loved these pigs in a blanket, and only learned in later years of the pastry dough type!!!

Great play on words! I don't have a problem with the colon, but I need to get my Dangling Participle checked. It's been conjugating for some time now!

I would have chosen fondue if it had been included in the poll. I was in diapers in the 60s, but I remember it from the early 70s. There's a great cookbook called Cooking With Cheese that has many nice fondue recipes. Re The Melting Pot, there's one in Lexington and I plan on giving it a try eventually.

I don't think I ever made one of those Alum.foil pans with the expanding top of JIFFY POP without burning it. What a technological advance from our old 'shake-over-a-stove-burner popcorn maker to the all-in-one JIFFY POP. Then along came Microwaves to take all the flames out of Popcorn-making!

We may be about the same age. I was born in '64; my dad and first stepmother's wedding was in @ '76.

My grandmother introduced me to my first Jiffy-Pop. The neatest thing to me, though, was she had this really old popcorn popper. It was the coolest thing and made the best popcorn I've ever had. To top it off, she bought the mult-colored kernals. I always hoped the popcorn would pop into those colors, lol. Anyway, the popper was made out of aluminum, I think. It was battered and dented a bit from a lot of use. The lid was clear glass, so I could watch the popping action and the whole thing sat on a stand that had a coil in it. It was plugged into the wall to get the coil going and had no temperature control.

Yes kids today have no idea of the concept of popping corn. It is just throw a bag in the microwave and wait for the ding or the burnt smell.

Rumaki is indeed made typically with chicken livers and waterchestnuts wrapped in bacon,dipped or brushed in soy sauce and broiled....
