Fondue? I had curry and rice as a main for my dinner party. We started with nibbles - cheese ball, pineapple & cheese and cheese and cocktail onions on toothpicks and chip n dip - followed by shrimp cocktail. I'm having a senior moment as to what I made for dessert, but I know it'll come to me!

We really gave those fondue sets a workout in the 70s.
Not just for bread and cheese, but I remember one dinner party where we had ginger-battered giant prawns to cook in hot oil in the fondue. Lovely.

Or you can use them like a Chinese steamboat - broth in the fondue pot and cook the meat and veg (in pieces) in it, then drink the resulting "soup" as well.

You can fondue desserts too of course - fruit chunks in hot chocolate.

cubes of cheese and pineapple(tinned ) on a toothpick stabbed into an orange to look like a porkupine

Cherios and sausage rolls and cheeserolls and asparagas rolls. Melting moments.

#1 was asking for a MAIN course - not afternoon tea suggestions or starters!
