Fondue comes from the French word "fonder," which means "to melt." The word typically pertains to a traditional Swiss dish, comprising of melted cheese and wine. The fondue is usually eaten with bread.

Fondue au fromage is the dish prepared with melted cheese, white wine, a brandy made from cherry juice called Kirsch, and some seasoning. Chocolate fondue, another popular fondue dish consists of melted sauce, cream and alcoholic beverage in which fruit, cake or bread may be dipped and eaten. In French cuisine, the word "fondue" is usually used in reference with finely cut vegetables that turn to a soft mass due to slow and prolonged cooking. The pulpy mixture normally serves as a garnish to be eaten along with fish or meat.
