April 11 is National Cheese Fondue Day, so celebrate the fun and interactive dining experience of easy-to-make cheese fondue by making a warm batch for friends and family or by going out to eat at a fondue restaurant like The Melting Pot. Last year, The Melting Pot celebrated National Cheese Fondue Day with “Cheese for Charity” – for every cheese fondue purchase made on April 11, 2010, The Melting Pot donated $10 to local charities across North America.
