You all know by now about my love affair with cheese. Well, whenever we’re traveling – if there is any destination having to do with cheese (cheese maker, farmer’s market, cheese shop, cheese plate, etc) – you know it makes my itinerary. So, while visiting Banff during our trip to the Canadian Rockies last month, I read about the Grapes Wine Bar at the Fairmont Banff Springs hotel. It was highlighted as an excellent place to enjoy a delicious cheese fondue. So of course… it became a priority.
Now – while a good cheese plate always makes me “ooh and ahh” with delight, a well-made cheese fondue takes that delight to a whole new level. It’s the melty factor. A piping hot pot of bubbling melted cheese set in front of me? I mean – is there anything better in the world? I’m salivating thinking about it.
Anyway, my dear husband gets a kick out of watching me eat delicious yummy things (especially cheese). I guess I am rather expressive when I am in food ecstasy. During our fondue adventure in Banff, Adam took a little movie of me, which I will now share with you. I hope it puts a smile on your face.
I can’t seem to get the movie of you eating cheese fondu to run…
Love & hugs,
That just made me really happy.
Ben and I have been following your lead and going to one of the cheese shops at the Essex Street Market every Sunday. The smaller one.
We don’t remember anything we purchased or ate from week to week but the nice lady is very patient with us and feeds us lots of good tasty cheese pieces when we’re there. And we never shower beforehand so she is extra special and patient.
I wish we could make fondue, but as you know, we suck.
ooh yay! which one? Saxelby or formaggio kitchen? now that’s november – go to formaggio kitchen and ask if they have vacherin mont d’or… it’s sinfully delicious and only available this time of year!
