La Fondue de Nowel de l’Imposteur
  • Ingredients

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


    • 60 mL (¼ cup) olive oil
    • 1 onion, diced
    • 1 stalk celery, cut into short pieces
    • 500 mL (2 cups) low-carb red wine
    • 3 liters (12 cups) beef broth
    • 540 mL tomato juice
    • 15 mL (1 tbsp.) fennel seeds
    • 5 mL (1 tsp.) chili flakes
    • 1 sprig rosemary
    • Salt and pepper to taste


    • 500 mL of 35% cooking cream
    • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
    • 60 mL (¼ cup) finely grated Pecorino Romano cheese
    • Salt and pepper to taste


    • Homemade meatballs, Italian sausages in sections, beef flank steak in fillets, sliced Wagyu beef, olives, cherry tomatoes, oyster mushrooms, artichoke hearts, rapini and fennel.
  • Preparation


    • It is important to have the ingredients on hand before starting the recipe.
    • Heat the oil in a large pot and brown the onion and celery over medium-high heat.
    • Deglaze the bottom of the pot by adding the red wine. Reduce the liquid by half.
    • There’s nothing you can do about this wait period, but you can plan to play this festive tune: Fa la la la la la la la la
    • Add the remaining ingredients and simmer for 30 minutes.
    • Sift before pouring into the fondue pot.


    • In a large saucepan, heat cream with garlic over low heat. Simmer gently and reduce by a quarter. Remember to turn on the stove for the magic to happen!
    • Remove from heat.
    • Puree garlic in the cream with a blender.
    • Add Pecorino Romano and season to taste. Stir with a wooden spoon until smooth. Do not use a candy cane stick to stir!

    A few tips

    • The Culinary Impostor, himself a Keto, has prepared this fondue in harmony with his dietary approach! To complete this happy collaboration, here is a very interesting post on the art of adapting a fondue meal to the Keto/Ketogenic diet prepared for Fondussimo by nutritionist Hubert Cormier.
    • Are you worried about keeping your sauces warm throughout the meal? Get yourself some small chocolate fondue sets! Light the lantern and you’re done!
    • Dare to be luxurious with Wagyu beef this Holiday season! Visit your favorite butcher and your guests won’t believe their taste buds!
