This is what winter nights are for

Enjoy a fondue family night

A rather retro way to stave off the winter blues, fondue sets are making a big comeback this season and it’s no surprise why. The Master Class Cast Iron Enamelled Fondue Set makes for a perfect, dippy and delicious dinner that every member of the family will love. Spend a chilly night in with board games and a cheese, chocolate or meat fondue. And just so nobody gets confused over which fork belongs to them, each utensil is colour-coded so there’ll be no squabbles over whose bread dipped first.
