Fondue to make the heart grow fatter

Posted at 1:30 pm, December 7, 2011 in Food & Drink

Want something to warm your cockles? Raclette and fondue make the heart grow fonder at this time of year, and of course London has a variety of places that cater to to the turophile. The cheap, fast food option is the takeaway raclette stall sometimes behind the South Bank Centre during Real Food Market events, or sometimes at Borough Market. Large segments of cheese are melted to order over a gas flame onto a bed of potato. But a more reliable, and warmer (indoor!) option is to head to Androuet in Old Spitalfields Market which serves both raclette, and fondue, in true Gallic style; Androuet is a well-known cheese purveyor in its native France. The fondue pots also brim over in west London, at the dedicated cheese restaurant L’Art du Fromage. The Chelsea restaurant offers you cheese appetisers, cheese desserts, and cheese at every stage in between. Cheese intercourses are possibly not out of the question, as long as you don’t ask for ‘La Vache Qui Rit’.

For info, see androuet.com.
