The Art of the Fondue

Today is Valentine's Day and for those of you who are romantically inclined, we have a suggestion.  From where I sit, few things are as likely to earn you a kiss as a bubbling pot of cheese fondue.  And as Chef Jerry Pellegrino of Schola Cooking School would argue, it's undeniable:  sharing a fondue over candlelight is flat-out romantic.

Above are a few variations on the theme of eating melted delights from Chefs Amy von Lange & Jerry Pellegrino.

Executive Chef Jerry Pellegrino of Corks restaurant is fascinated by food and wine, and the way they work in harmony on the palate. His understanding of the two goes all the way to the molecular level, drawing on his advanced education in molecular biology. His cuisine is simple and surprising, pairing unexpected ingredients together to work with Corks' extensive wine offerings.
