Being a football fan doesn’t actually require you to spend Super Bowl Sunday elbow-deep in a bucket of wings, or mainlining poppers, sliders, and other foods from the “–er” family. Confound all expectations, and pair your pigskin love with fondue!
At temple-of-cheese Artisanal – where they’re serving a different fondue for every day of February – they’re throwing a Fondue Party for Super Bowl XLIV, and ladling out two types of the gooey goodness: An appropriately all-American Monterey Jack from California, served with black beans and chipotle peppers, and their special Artisanal Blend of cow-milk cheeses from the E.U. (where football means something else entirely). Do your dipping with baigneuses like kielbasa, air-dried beef and fingerling potatoes.
And for those concerned about breaking with tradition, chef Terrance Brennan will also be serving Artisanal sliders, chips and housemade dips, soft pretzels with spicy mustard, and wings. But, you know, fancy-like. (See the full Super Bowl menu here.)
The game will be screening on Artisanal’s 82-inch screens. Reserve early, and please: No face-painting.
