The fondue family of pots and accessories could underwrite a major architectural addition to your proposed Museum.


Skeen comes out against melted cheese. Some say unAmerican. Despite the whole aura, one can enjoy fondue outside the context of a swingers party at a 70s ski chalet.

But you don't need a fondue pot to make fondue. You just need a pot. Actually you don't even need that. This January I took to putting camenberts in the oven in the little wood container that they come in. Get them bubbling hot (so much for the lait cru, it's not so cru anymo!) and just dunk things in them, like spoons.

A cast iron skillet for such a small amount of money at Lodge!!! Do they pay children in seashells and popcorn to make them? Why can't we have inexpensive products over here in Fort Europe like they do over there in North America?

Oooh ooooooh I know, I know, I know the answer!

I don't know what to say about Dev2.0

Gerry Casale's bravely defends the move, daring the irony gods to smite him. I guess not everyone can count on movie scores like Danny Elfman, or performing honest to goodness children's music like Dan Zanes to get them to retirement. It's hard to get outraged when Iggy Pop's on Carnival Cruises. I've even heard the guitar riff from Heroin between stories on NPR.

Is the manufactured regurgitation of the pop of your parent's youth any worse than manufactured original material? I might prefer "Boy You Want" over The Cheetah Girls. At least I know the words.

The best solution I can think of is to allow your children to tune into adult fare as young as possible and hope they'll make good choices. But that pink princess peer pressure. She's a bitch.

Apparently the GoGos are next on the Disney makoever list. I hope they at least do their best to send the same positive body image message.

I have no opinions on Tagines, though it bears out the general rule with kitchen implements that utility is inversely related to prettiness. Which is why there are so many lousy tea kettles. The standard Le Creuset Cocotte is perhaps among the few exceptions to this rule.

But Lodge is massively copying le Creuset. Unfortunately they haven't included celadon in their colour range, but the apple pot is a clear rip off. I'm trying to not be a chauvinista, and whose side am I on anyhoo? NO ONE's. I utterly disenfranchised!

The white tagine looks vaguely iPodish. D'ya think that's intentional?
