Fabulous Fondue in the Bay Area
Last night I went to the fondue restaurant in Larkspur called the Melting Pot. I was there for a fund raiser with Estee Lauder for Breast Cancer Awareness. They were serving a four course fondue meal for $36 a person. Six of those dollars went to the charity. The food was excellent. The ambiance at the Melting Pot is pretty cool too! It’s located in an old brick kiln.
We started out with some fabulous pink cocktails and then they brought the first course: Amazing Alp and Dell Cheese Fondue; Reisling wine, whole grain mustard and nutmeg with a blend of Gruyere, Raclette, and Fontinia Cheeses. YUMMY! We were given bread and apple to dip in to this fabulous mixture.
The next course was a fresh mixed green salad. Next was a plate of mixed meats roasted garlic crusted chicken, Hefeweizen marinated shrimp (my favorite) and sun dried tomato ravioli along with a plate of vegetables. They also had a vegetarian plate with ravioli and vegetables.
The last course was incredible! I’m not a big dessert person and I actually wasn’t even going to try it but I’m so glad I did! The dessert was White Chocolate Apple Cobbler Fondue that came with a plate for of mini desserts to dip in to the fondue.
This four course meal is normally $40 a person but they have monthly Girls’ Night Out where the meal is either $30 or $36 if it is for a charity event.
I’d definitely come back here.

Love fondue but i’ve never tried it outside of Switzerland.
It’s pretty yummy!
I just love The Melting Pot restaurants and this one in particular. The setting is amazing.
