first came into existence back in May 2000. Seems a long
time ago now!
snapshot of the Hub-UK
menu in December 2000
then the internet was a very different place with much
more of an amateur feel to it. In a lot of ways it was
a pleasanter and more friendly place to hang out. For
those of us interested in food and cooking it was a
great opportunity to chat and share ideas with people
living in other parts of the world.
was also a time when everyone involved in cooking, whether
they were just a keen amateur, a busy mum, a grandmother
with a lifetime of kitchen experience or a professional
chef just starting a career in the kitchen or one who
was an old hand working at the stove, was happy to share
recipes so others could enjoy them.
lot of the details of who contributed what have either
become blurred or disappeared over the years but the
recipes are still worthwhile either in their own right
or for the inspiration they might give.
recipe was from a posting to one of the Recipe Groups
recipe appeals to me both for its simplicity and its
appeal to the taste buds. If you have never had a Fondue
before you have been missing out - a great way to relax
with a bottle of wine or two. (For shrimps read raw
prawns or similar).
lb shelled shrimp
Juice of 1 lemon
8 oz Gruyere cheese
2 pints chicken stock
1/4 cup chopped dill
Pinch cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp sugar
shrimp with lemon juice and leave 10 minutes.
stock into metal fondue and heat.
grated cheese and stir over low heat until melted
- do not boil.
from heat, stir in onions, dill, cayenne, sugar and
pan to table and place on spirit burner.
on fondue forks, dip in to fondue for 1 minute then
with slices of crusty Italian bread, hot.
