Porcini Swiss Fondue

“Thiis comes from "The Silver Palate Good Times Cookbook". Anyone who came of age in the early 80′s and loved good food has either been to this charming Manhattan restaurant or own one of the many cookbooks authored by Sheila Lukins and Jule Rosso. Sunday mornings, it was standing room only (well, not really standing room) we were actually standing outside as the restaurant was very small and cozy. Ah, I love memories that are filled with good food, good friends and delightful conversation, such is "The Silver Palate:. This fondue combines the culinary flavors of three cheeses and white wine, how can you go wrong?”
