Festive Fondue Chinoise: A Swiss Christmas Tradition!

Christmas is just around the corner, and with it comes the much-anticipated Christmas dinner. A traditional dish enjoyed by many families in Switzerland on Christmas Eve is Fondue Chinoise.

This festive meal involves thin slices of meat, similar to cheese fondue, speared onto a special fork and cooked in a flavorful broth. For vegetarians, a separate pot with vegetable broth and an array of vegetables can be offered. Various sauces are served according to personal preferences, adding a delightful touch to the experience.


When it comes to side dishes, the possibilities are endless. Some families opt for rice, others choose potatoes or french fries, while some include salads. The beauty of Fondue Chinoise lies in the fact that sauces and side dishes can often be prepared in advance, making the Christmas dinner a social and enjoyable gathering without the stress of getting every course ready in time.


Regardless of the specific menu, the essence of Christmas Eve lies in spending quality time with loved ones. So, whether you're savoring Fondue Chinoise or any other dish, the most important thing is to cherish this time with dear people. Wishing you all a wonderful and joyous Christmas!
