For my 10th birthday my parents took me on a three hour drive to Der Rheinlander restaurant, in Portland, OR, for my birthday. Very big hit. Starting with this WONDERFUL cheese fondue served with chunks of wonderful dark rye bread. Der Rheinlander used to give away this recipe although its a little more difficult to find these days. If you are in the Portland, OR area you may be able to find this fondue jarred in some grocery stores.
