Welcome to The Melting Pot in Phoenix.
The Melting Pot Restaurant is where fun is cooked up fondue style!
If you are looking for one the finest restaurants in the Ahwatukee Foothills area, look no further than the fondue experience of a lifetime at The Melting Pot! Choose from 2, 3 or more mouthwatering courses to complete your romantically fun dining experience.
We start by melting cheeses, seasonings and other secret ingredients right before your eyes! We then follow that delectable course with a light dinner salad to change up your feasting palate before the main course is presented. The fondue effect then continues on to entrée to fit everyone’s exclusive preferences. Whether you are a Steak Lover, a Seafood Trio fan, Vegetarian fanatic or even a Gluten-Free diner; we have a plate that will surely satisfy you! Last but definitely not least (sometimes it even comes first!), we have chocolate fondue. With an entire menu devoted to these little morsels of heaven, your chocolate decision might be the hardest one you’ve ever had to make.
Although it technically has a Phoenix address, this unique Melting Pot location is found in the heart of the township of Ahwatukee. Just drive a couple of miles west of the I-10 on Ray Road, and you will find yourself at one of the tastiest and most romantic restaurants around! There is even a ballroom dancing school right next door, what a perfect idea for an incredible date! What most people don’t realize is that this location is one of the closest ones to the East Valley! Chandler, Gilbert and Queen Creek, that means you!
Traditional Swiss Fondue
3 1/2 cups Swiss cheese, shredded
2 tbsp All-purpose flour
1 cup White wine
2 tbsp Lemon juice, fresh
2 tsp Garlic, finely chopped
1 oz Cherry-flavored liqueur (Kirschwasser recommended)
1/2 tsp Pepper, freshly ground
Dash Nutmeg, grated
• Toss the cheese with the flour in a bowl. Place a metal bowl over a saucepan filled with two inches of water. You may also use a conventional double boiler. Bring the water to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and pour the wine into the bowl. Stir in the lemon juice and garlic using a fork. Cook for 30 seconds stirring constantly.
• Add half of the cheese, and stir constantly until the cheese is melted. Add the remaining cheese a small amount at a time stirring constantly. Pour the liqueur slowly around the edge of the bowl. Pull the cheese mixture away from the edge of the bowl and cook for about one minute or until the alcohol cooks off. Stir the liqueur into the cheese. Stir the pepper in gently. Pour into a warm fondue pot and keep warm over low heat. Garnish with a dash of nutmeg.
