Fondue of the Day #2574

Sam recently returned to Berkeley from far-off lands, and it seems he’ll be here for a while as the next chapter of his life builds up. He had some people over tonight, where we met his friends Rachel and Ruth and bonded over fondue and board games. We had a nice time – these are lovely people, and Laurel was excited that she was able to come out and meet them.

Keeping a fondue going is tricky without specialized equipment. Sam had just a makeshift double boiler, and whenever the cheese became too viscous we had to send it back to the stove for a moment. The two pots nearly sealed together, and at one point the steam pressure built up so much that it all burst out in a massive pop – thankfully sparing Sam fram any steam burns.

All this is part of growing up – cobbling things together to make something nice, making potentially dangerous mistakes on the way, talking over good food. Someday we’ll all be experts in our crafts, but the little stumbles on the way there are an important part of the experience.
