Fashioned from a time-honored Swiss recipe, Tiger Classic Cheese Fondue features authentic Swiss Emmental, Swiss Gruyere, white wine, Kirsch brandy and spices in an ultra-convenient, ready-to-melt, shelf-stable package that can be kept from 6 – 9 months without refrigeration.
Tiger Fondue (fondue is derived from the French word: fondre – to melt) easily melts into a deliciously smooth and creamy texture, ideal for dipping, in five minutes. Tiger’s classic, bold flavors warm the senses and evoke the feeling of enjoying a pot of Alpine history by a cozy, mountaintop fire. This sensation perfectly captures why the Swiss have called Cheese Fondue their national dish since 1930 and how, subsequently, a worldwide attraction followed.
Fondue etiquette suggests if someone loses bread in the fondue pot, he or she must either buy the communal pot partakers a round of drinks, or give them a round of kisses. Depending on the company, it is always a good idea to square the rules of fondue engagement up front.
Application: Simply open the vacuum-sealed foil packet and slide the fondue into a fondue pot, stovetop pot or microwavable container. Melt for quick and easy appetizer or main course that can be served in romantic intimacy or as the centerpiece of a party. It is unnecessary to add ingredients but garlic, herbs, spices and diced vegetables can be added to taste. Usually served with bite-sized pieces of firm bread, cut fruits and vegetables can also be used for dipping. Plus, Tiger fondue is a delicious topper for toast or roasted vegetables. Requiring no refrigeration also makes Tiger Fondue a great addition to a holiday gift basket.
Pairing: The prevailing drink pairing for fondue is white wine. However, another school thought calls for black tea. For the white wine camp, consider wines with acidity and a touch of sweetness. A German Riesling, Pinot Grigio or a Chenin Blanc would be good choices.
