Fondue and Parties

This past weekend I got it into my head to make some chocolate fondue, I'm a big fan of dipping dishes but I'd never attempted to make one myself. This time however I decided to try what I call "blind cooking", making something I'd never made before without a recipe, depending solely on the way it tasted to be able to guess what went into it.

I famously made a disastrous risotto using my blind cooking method, stupidly using regular rice I bought from Ogba Sunday Market instead of Arborio or Carnaroli rice (where on earth would I have found those in Lagos sef, even if I had known).

With this fondue however, I was like its just melting chocolate, not too big a deal. It wasn't an all out failure like my risotto but it wasn't a roaring success either. Experience is the best teacher anyway, now I have a recipe. Decided to have my friends Amerie and Craig over to try it with me.

Wasn't sure if I could use regular chocolate or I had to buy cooking chocolate, so I just went with my Old Faithful, Dairy Milk and my favourite dipping fruit, strawberries. Pineapples and marshmallows are pretty good too, only fondue I can't stand is the cheese one, weird how I detest cheese but I love pizza.

                          

After gorging ourselves on stawberry dipped chocolates and a sweet Portugese Madeira, Amerie and I got ready for our friend Hazel's birthday. Started messing about with my camera while we were getting ready
