Fontina Fondue with 
Cauliflower Dippers

Everybody loves hot dips on a holiday buffet table, so this subtly flavored 
fondue is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. Look for green, purple, and orange cauliflower varieties to add color to the dipper selection. To make ahead: Cook cauliflower in advance, combine cheese and flour, and measure out milk and hot sauce into a jam jar. Stash these prepped items in the fridge so all you need to do is warm and season the fondue just before guests arrive.
