Stories: My mom didn't hit the stove too often while my sister and I were growing up, but fondue was her forté. She always wanted to make sure we ate enough fresh fruits and vegetables, and fondue was her way of luring us to a fruit salad. She would spend hours washing berries and cutting up all sorts of exotic fruits along with apples, pears and bananas.
