Although steak, seafood, chicken, salads, and wines share the spotlight, it's the fondue pot that transforms the dining experience at The Melting Pot of Appleton into an interactive one. Bubbling at the center of the table, steel cauldrons steam with cheese blends such as aged cheddar and lager beer, or fontina, butterkäse, and buttermilk blue. Spear slices of granny smith apples, artisan breads, and veggies before dipping them into the thick, creamy cheese. Although a wine and cheese fondue pairing may suit the evening on its own, a fresh salad followed by lobster, steak, chicken, and shrimp turns the experience into a three-course event. Continue the dipping feast by adding one of nine velvety chocolate fondues; diners can gather around the table to dunk strawberries, marshmallows, or chunks of cheesecake.
