I'm having a few friends over for dinner on New Year's Eve and I thought about serving fondue. I have a gorgeous heavy cast-iron Le Cruset fondue pot and I thought this would be a good occasion to use it. I also have a really good cheese fondue recipe from The Joy of Cooking. But I need help as to:

1. What besides bread chunks can I use for dipping in the cheese? I mean, of course I'll offer bread, but is there anything else?

2. What would be a good starter course?

3. What for side dishes?

4. What would you want to drink with cheee fodue? Beer or wine? Or should I offer both?

4. What would be a good dessert?

Thanks for any suggestios you can give me!

Aw heck, this was supposed to be a new thread, not a reply to Baking Disaster, help!! I apologize to the OP for the intrusion and I'd appreciate it if someone would kindly report this to a mod and get it deleted. Thanks.

Okay, that is weird -- I posted my reply before I'd seen Sonia's.

Sonia, when you get that thread started I have some ideas for you!
