Chef Gosselin Seafood Fondue


The Gosselin family tradition for Christmas Eve is fondue. I pre prep all the ingredients and we go to the movies. Upon our return…I change into my Chef whites and put out a wonderful spread. I usually make a beer cheese based fondue, a main course (beef or seafood) fondue and a dessert fondue. Let’s make my recipe for a seafood fondue. It is a wonderful and easy social menu that get’s the family or guests revolving around your serving area.
