A Cheese Dream: Savoyard Fondue with Wild Mushrooms

If you are cheese-lover like me, this post if for you. Imagine, three different kinds of cheese, seasoned, melted with the help of alcohol and you deep a piece of dry bread into it,  the bread softens ... So simple, so perfect.
Fondue is a Swiss/French dish, it is great for winter evenings especially after a skiing day. It is rather heavy but it is impossible to resist.
Special thanks to Fred, for preparing this great meal for My Food Chronicles.

There is one kind of of food which most people enjoy more like meat balls, spaghetti with bolognese sauce or chicken wings. There is another kind of food that people tend to ignore as leek soup, artichoke and the poor, old chickpeas. Although they are delicious and go perfectly with meat and rice, we somehow forget about them. As unsatisfactory as they may seem, they can turn into wonders in the right hands. In this particular case, my hands!

Baked Raspberry Cheesecake

Did you know that cheesecake was originated from ancient Greece? It seems historians believes that it was server to the athletes during the first Olympic Games held in 776 B.C. Who would have thought at that time, the dessert of athletes would become one of those popular comfort food around the world. In different countries, there are different adaptations of cheesecake, Americans prepare it with cream cheese, where as Italians with ricotta. The one that I have prepared is more like North American style, with cream cheese and baked. I am dedicating this post to Halit, who is craving for dessert.
