Coq au Vin Fondue

Classic Coq au Vin ingredients to cook your fondue meats in. A savory broth with red wine, mushrooms, green onions, and garlic.

Coq au Vin Fondue

Fondue parties should make a comeback! They are so fun and enjoyable for your family/guests.

My family and I vacation to bigger cities during the summer months and Melting Pot restaurant is always one of our favorites to go to.

They serve an entire meal with fondue – cheese course, meat course, and dessert.

There’s also a salad in between, but who’s there for the salad anyway?

If you’re interested in a cheese course, check out classic beer cheese fondue and Swiss cheese fondue.

There isn’t a Melting Pot or other fondue restaurant where I live so I like to recreate it at home.

Fondue has been a tradition for me to serve on New Years’ Eve since I was little. It’s perfect for bringing in the new year, especially if you have friends and family over to celebrate!

It’s also a great dinner idea for Christmas, a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner, anniversary treat, or in my case, I also had it as a 17th birthday surprise many years ago.

Table settings

Fondue is not just a fancy meal for adults.

Kids love it! It’s a good way to show them how to cook their own food. Kids think it’s so neat to put their fondue forks in the pot and watch it cook.

If you are planning this for a party and doing larger quantities as I did, I recommend prepping the day before.

All of your meat and vegetables will do well in the refrigerator. The meat will have a chance to marinade too.

The bulk of this meal is spent in the prepping and not the cooking since your guests will be cooking for themselves.

Coq au Vin Fondue

At Melting Pot, they have this amazing Coq au Vin fondue to cook meat in that’s really delicious.

I have replicated this fondue for you to try!

It flavors your meat as it cooks and is so savory.

We tend to dump all of our vegetables into the pot right from the get-go because it takes a little longer for those to cook.

That is one thing I recommend about this recipe: put your veggies in the pot first and get that cooking. The meat can cook around them.

Season all of your meat and vegetables prior to cooking.

Yes, some seasoning comes off in the pot, this is normal and only adds to the broth flavor.

You do not have to use all the meats I used. They can be mixed-and-matched, use lobster tails, salmon, or any of your favorite local meats.

If you need a vegetarian option, substitute with vegetable broth as the base and dip things like mushroom-stuffed ravioli, vegetable potstickers, asparagus, zucchini, artichoke hearts, peppers, and broccoli.

Fondue Etiquette:

  • Do not eat directly off your fondue fork. Not only will the metal be hot, but the fork is quite sharp.
  • Don’t put raw meat on your dinner plate prior to cooking. If you’re having difficulties, use the edge of the dish the raw meat is in to pierce it onto the fork.
  • Each guest or family member should receive two fondue forks to cook with.
  • Make sure you keep track of which fork is yours so you know how long it has been cooking. Most forks come color coated with two forks in each color.
  • If you are serving more than one course it’s important to give your guests fresh new fondue forks that are clean.
  • Remember to have FUN! It’s meant to be an enjoyable experience with your family and friends.

Coq au Vin Fondue Cook Times:

  • Chicken cook times: 5 minutes
  • Beef cook times: 4 minutes
  • Pork cook times: 5 minutes
  • Shrimp cook times: 4 minutes if uncooked shrimp, about 1 minute if precooked
  • Vegetable cook times: 5-7 minutes

You can set these timers on your phone: Melting Pot Food Timer.

Can this be done using a crockpot? I don’t have a fondue pot.


Saturday 13th of February 2021

Hi Brie, A crockpot may not work as well because it needs a high enough heat to simmer as it cooks the meat and vegetables. If your crockpot has higher heat settings it could possibly work for you. Otherwise, low heat would take a lot longer to cook - not making a very fun experience. An Instant Pot would work since it has higher heat settings and could get you to a medium-high heat easily. Another alternative that would work is if you have a hot plate or freestanding burner to set a pot on in the center of your table. -Tiffany
