New Glarus Cheese Fondue

New Glarus is a village in Green County, Wisconsin at the intersection of Wisconsin Highways 69 and 39. The village, as well as the town in which it lies, was named after the Canton of Glarus in eastern Switzerland. This Town was founded in 1845 by immigrants from Glarus, Switzerland and incorporated in 1901.

New Glarus still maintained much of Swiss heritage and many old world traditions. In town, we can see Swiss-style chalets. Swiss flags at many businesses and homes, including Swiss-style shops.

Due to lots of cattles in New Glarus, this place would be the birth of dairy farming and cheese making location. Therefore, New Glarus is known for many traditional Swiss dishes and its popular beer.

One of favorite foods commonly available in New Glarus is "Fondue" (cheese or meat). Fondue is a Swiss communal dish shared at the table in a pot over a small burner (rechaud). Diners use forks to dip bits of food (most often bread) into the warm semi-liquid sauce (commonly a cheese mix).

Restaurant that we went for Cheese Fondue named "Glarner Stube" which means Living Room of New Glarus. They served fine dining & spirits
