Pair This: The Melting Pot’s Flaming Turtle & Rose Regale

By Jan Walsh, Photography by Beau Gustafson

The Melting Pot is a restaurant like no other in the Birmingham area. It brought fondue back into my life—and expanded my palate for fondue fare. After dining here the first time, I even asked for a fondue pot for Christmas. And I got two. But my own pots do not compare to my experiences at The Melting Pot. Here I can relax and “cook” my fondue without shopping for fondue fuel and food.

I match chocolate and sparkling wine for a decadent ending to evenings here. Flaming Turtle
 combines milk chocolate, caramel and candied pecans flambéed table-side. And for our dipping pleasure are fresh strawberries, bananas, cheesecake, Rice Krispies Treats®, marshmallows, pound cake and brownies. Pair with Rose Regale Sparkling Wine. Red in color with notes of strawberry and raspberry and a light and refreshing effervescence make this semi–sweet sparkler a perfect match for hot, nutty chocolate.
