With time I have become more and more lazy about cooking. I also wanted to make our meals a lot more fun, and whenever we have guests, making it easier to cook for many people.
So one day, we had guests over, and three hours before dinner time I was there again, cooking for several hours and by the time the guests would come home I’d be exhausted.
And one day I thought to myself, why not find a way of making the guests cook their own food. Spending very little time doing any cooking before the guests arrived so I can dedicate my mental effort to entertain them and to also have fun myself, for once.
And then I came across this fondue machine on Amazon.
And I thought it was a great idea. You just need to find a recipe which I found on BBC food (I love this website by the way). Cut a few pieces of cold meat, potatoes, boil some broccoli and vegetables and toast some pieces of bread.
It takes you tops one hour to prepare everything including the fondue and just a few minutes to heat up. You leave it melting in the pot whilst you say hi to your guests, and then you can sit down and have a meal together.
Now, the problem will come the day that you have a guest or many guys who are not into cheese, then is when you really need to think about a different tactic to save time preparing dinner…!
