Whether made with cheese or chocolate, fondue has a kind of cheesy, finicky reputation. But in spite of its kitsch, dipping bits of food in gooey, melted fromage or dark, liquid chocolate makes for a fun, flirty, surprisingly low-effort meal.

Some time ago I spent the better part of two years of my young life working in a fancy imported chocolate shop, a period during which the approach of chocolate-themed holidays like Valentine's and Easter was frankly terrifying. After spending so much time enlightening customers about the virtues of fine chocolate, I've gained quite a bit of knowledge that I'm willing to share with you, whether you're starting your journey into chocolate snobbery or just making sure you buy the right chocolates for your significant other.
Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
Snappy, treat-studded chocolate bark is a holiday treat that is always met with much enthusiasm. (Williams Sonoma is able to charge $42 for 454g of their peppermint iteration, making it more expensive than organic rib eye.) There is, however, no reason to spend a bunch on bark, as it can be made in your kitchen with very little effort.
Someone in my household managed to get the sticky, sugary residue of Halloween lollies (chocolate and fruity/hard lollies) onto our wooden coffee table. NBD in that it wasn't an expensive item, by any means, but I'd still prefer to clean it than to replace it. How can I get the patch of sticky stuff off without ruining the finish? I've tried a coarse sponge and detergent, with no luck.
Formerly just a NSW phenomenon (and a limited one at that), Australians across the country will soon be able to enjoy a "Frozen Oak" by popping into their local Caltex. The fusion of chocolate, ice and milk is being rolled out in Queensland, Victoria, Western Australia and South Australia over the next two weeks.
Have you ever been tucking into an Ice Vovo, Wagon Wheel, Caramel Crowns or Mint Slice and thought to yourself: "this is delish, but it needs to be cold as buggery"? Well, it appears the biscuit gods have heard you. Arnott's is teaming up with Peters Ice Cream to turn four of its favourite products into frozen desserts. Here are the details!
Welcome to this week's edition of Will It Sous Vide?, the column where I make things with my immersion circulator.
Easter has passed and the bunny has come and gone, but the chocolate remains. You may have some leftovers, or you may -- in your infinite wisdom -- have hit up the clearance aisle to stock up on peanut butter eggs and hollow chocolate rabbits. Either way, here are some of the most delicious things you can do with your sweet haul besides just eating it.
Many boxed chocolates come with a little menu that tells you what kind of chocolate you're dealing with. It's useful if you want to, say, eat all the caramels and leave the coconuts, but even if you don't have a guide, it's pretty easy to identify chocolate types just by their shape.
To celebrate the 2017 Lunar New Year, KitKat is bringing two of its famously exotic flavours to chocolate connoisseurs Down Under: the Citrus Creme Brulee KitKat and Red Bean and Toasted Coconut KitKat. For the princely sum of $68, you can purchase a selection of both flavours in a Special Edition gift set. That's $68. For some KitKats. Let's see what they taste like.
