Sierra Universal- Cheese, Meat or Chocolate

Meat fondue originated in France in the middle ages. During the grape harvest, pickers set up pots in the vineyards to cook their meals as it became convenient for them during the day. This ensured a leisurely lunch that could be enjoyed hot and fresh. Today this original recipe has evolved in many variations to include using chicken, seafood and much more.
Cast iron fondue sets are best suited for meat fondues because they provide even heat distribution and are ideal for cooking at high and low temperatures. If the pot is enameled on the inside it can also be used for a small cheese and chocolate fondue. 

Electric Universal- Cheese , Meat Or Chocolate
This easy to use electric fondue set from Swissmar allows you to make cheese, meat, and chocolate fondues. 
Cheese Fondue Recipe
YIELD:Makes 6 servings

1 garlic clove, halved crosswise

1 1/2 cups dry white wine

1 tablespoon cornstarch

2 teaspoons kirsch (optional)

8 oz Emmental cheese, coarsely grated (2 cups) VITA SANA

8 oz Gruyère cheese, coarsely grated (2 cups) VITA SANA


Rub inside of a 4-quart heavy pot with cut sides of garlic, then discard garlic. Add wine to pot and bring just to a simmer over moderate heat.

Stir together cornstarch and kirsch (if using; otherwise, use water or wine) in a cup.

Gradually add cheese to pot and cook, stirring constantly in a zigzag pattern (not a circular motion) to prevent cheese from balling up, until cheese is just melted and creamy (do not let boil). Stir cornstarch mixture again and stir into fondue. Bring fondue to a simmer and cook, stirring, until thickened, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer to fondue pot set over a flame.

What to dip
  • Cubes of French bread
  • Cubes of apple and pear
  • Roasted potatoes
  • Julienned raw red bell pepper
  • Blanched broccoli florets
What to drink:
  • Dry white wine such as dry Riesling or Sancerre

Lemon Olive Oil Bundt Cake
  • 4 to 5 large lemons
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 5 large eggs
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups VS Lemon Fused Olive Oil + 1 TBSP to rub the pan
  • Confectioners' sugar, for sprinkling
  • Position a rack in the middle of the oven, remove any racks above, and crank up the heat to 350°F (180°C). Coat a 12-cup Bundt or tube pan with VS Lemon Fused Olive Oil and set aside.
  • Finely grate the zest of 3 lemons and then squeeze the juice from 4 of them. You should have 1 1/2 cups of lemon juice; if not, squeeze the 5th lemon.
  • Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment or with a handheld mixer in a large bowl, beat the eggs on medium-high speed until well combined, about 1 minute. Slowly pour in the granulated sugar and continue to beat until thick and pale yellow, about 3 minutes. Switch to low speed and alternate adding the flour mixture and the VS Lemon Fused Olive Oil, starting and ending with the flour and beating until just a few wisps of flour remain. Pour in the lemon juice and zest and whirl for a few seconds to bring the batter together.
  • Gently scrape the batter into the prepared pan and bake until a cake tester comes out with a few moist crumbs clinging to it, about 1 1/4 hours. Check the cake occasionally and if the top begins to brown a touch too much, loosely cover it with foil. When the cake is done, transfer the pan to a wire rack and let the cake cool in the pan for 15 minutes. (Don't forget to come back after 15 minutes. Seriously. If the cake remains in the pan too long, the sugars begin to cool and stick to the pan.)
  • Turn the cake out onto the wire rack and let it cool completely. (We know. Resist the temptation.) Place the cake on a covered cake stand and let it sit overnight. (Seriously. This dense, moist, fruity cake only gets better with age. Don't even think about taking a bite until the day after you make it-or even the day after that.) Just before serving, dust with confectioners' sugar.

*For a fun presentation place whole, washed Strawberries in center of the baked cake until full.

Cut and serve, top with whipped cream mixture!
Lemon Pepper Fettuccini
Lemon juice, lemon peel, black and cayenne pepper. Tart, with some bite. Demanded by many restaurants because of its versatility. 

Recommended Accompaniments:
Great for chicken or seafood dishes, and excellent in cold pasta salads. To spice it up a bit, add some butter, a little lemon juice, and some garlic and pepper. Or try a light red sauce like our Classic Marinara with some freshly-grated Parmesan cheese.
Lemon Peel Granules
Vita Sana's Healthy Life Lemon Peel Granules  consist of dried lemon peel. Reconstitute before use or use in marinades and sausages. Prepared from fresh lemon peel which has been washed, trimmed, diced, dried, and milled into granules.

Rooibos Lemon Cloud
The lemon is such a universal fruit with so many uses. Arguably two of its best applications are desserts and tea. We have combined the tangy citrus flavor with creamy vanilla and a hint of lemongrass. Soft, fluffy, lemon cream taste and naturally caffeine-free. Soothing and uplifting; dreamy and dessert-like.
