Colder weather is well on its way to the Queen City, which means there's no better time for the return of Share: Cheesebar's weekly Fondue for Two.
From 5-8 p.m. every Thursday night through spring, Share serves a fondue pot with dippable options for vegetarians ($20) and carnivores ($24) and half-price bottles of wine (with purchase), offering a variety of whites, reds and rosés.
Dining in, the tables at Share transform into a sea sprinkled with bright red cast-iron pots (nestled on Sterno warmers) and groups of people dunking veg and bread into nutty and fragrant white cheese. Each pot comes with color-coded dip sticks, so there’s no mix-up as to whose dipper is whose. And if you run out of food before your cheese, you can order a second helping (or just eat the cheese straight from the pot).
Expect dippable bites like potatoes, broccoli, apples, bread and a rotating sausage.
Share also offers fondue kits that cheese fiends can take to-go and make in the comfort of their own homes. The take-home kit is perfect for a romantic date night in, small get-togethers (like really small) or perhaps — for most of us — to be consumed in one sitting while wearing PJs and watching Netflix.
All you need is a cup of sauvignon blanc and a fondue pot in order to make the cheesy treat. We won't tell you what to do with the rest of the wine…
If you don't have a fondue pot, Share owner Emily Frank says a cast iron pot will work just as well.
The fondue kit (which is a generous portion for two) retails for $12 and it can be picked up from Share's grab-and-go cooler.
Fondue for Two, 5-8 p.m., Thursdays. Share: Cheesebar, 6105 Ridge Ave., Pleasant Ridge.
