Mirror Lake Inn

If you entertain a lot one of best dishes to prepare is fondue; classically it is a simple combination of wine, cheese and bread. It is quick dish to make and will always be a hit at your table.

“There is no better time to gather as friends and family than the winter. To share a table, converse and connect is truly the best of what the season, and humanity, has to offer.”

Chef Curtiss

This menu pays tributes to the influence the Adirondacks and the mountain villages of the French Alps have had on Chef Curtiss. In this class chef Curtiss will showcase the versatility of fondue, making a classic Alsatian fondue then tilting the pot to make a local beer and cheese fondue, both served with classic accoutrements.
