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.
