    When using the Evolution Mini, reduce the amount of ingredients by about one-third.

    FOR THE DILL BROTH:

    • 2.5 litres (10 cups) vegetable stock
    • 125 ml (1/2 cup) white wine
    • 1 onion, chopped
    • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
    • Zest of 2 lemons
    • 2 stalks celery, chopped
    • 80 ml (1/3 cup) fresh dill, finely chopped
    • 1 bay leaf
    • 500 ml (2 cups) 15% cooking cream
    • 45 ml (3 tbsp) cornstarch
    • 45 ml (3 tbsp) cold water
    • Salt and pepper to taste

    FOR THE PICKLE SAUCE:

    • 250 ml (1 cup) mayonnaise
    • 60 ml (1/4 cup) chopped dill pickles
    • 60 ml (1/4 cup) 1% sour cream
    • 15 ml (1 tbsp) fresh dill, chopped

    SUGGESTED DIPPING INGREDIENTS:

    • Salmon cubes
    • White fish cubes (cod, haddock, etc.)
    • Pollock sticks
    • Smoked meat
    • Cheese tortellini
    • Cheese curds
    • Green beans
    • Asparagus
    • Baby potatoes (precooked or not, see the tips below)
    • Small cauliflower, cut into florets
    • Small courgettes cut into half slices
  • Preparation

    • In a pot, combine the vegetable stock with the wine, onion, garlic, lemon zest, celery, dill and bay leaf. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 20 to 25 minutes over low-medium heat, until about a quarter of the liquid has evaporated. 
    • In a small bowl, dissolve the cornstarch in the cold water. 
    • Add the cooking cream and the cornstarch to the pot. Stir and continue cooking for 2 to 3 minutes. 
    • Taste the broth and season with salt and pepper. Taste again and adjust the seasoning if necessary. 
    • If desired, strain the broth through a sieve. Pour the required amount of broth into the Fondussimo set. Reserve the rest of the stock to add during the meal. 
    • Mix the sauce ingredients in a bowl.
    • Arrange the dipping ingredients in serving tableware, and enjoy!

    A few tips

    • To speed up your reinvented fondue meal, precook your cauliflower, potatoes, asparagus and pasta before adding them to the broth! Find out more about the precooking for Fondussimo meals in this article from our blog: To precook or not to precook?
    • To make the most of your leftover broth, use it to top fish (trout or salmon), either as is or after thickening it a bit! Or for the more adventurous: turn it into a reinvented clam chowder broth!
    • If you love fresh dill, don’t hesitate to put some aside to sprinkle over your dipping ingredients when they come out of the broth!
