We can all agree, we've probably eaten a staggering amount of cheese during lockdown – so, why not add another cheese-based recipe to the list at this point? Auckland Viaduct's Coops Corner Pub has kindly shared with us one of our favourite entrees from the modern gastropub – their Kinda Fondu.
This triple cheese dip is even easier than you're imagining (with plenty of room for optional add-ons to navigate the flavour to your liking) making for an easy crowd-pleaser to keep the troops settled until the main dish is served. Usually served with Coops' Pizza Sticks, feel free to get creative as we wait out our next visit to Coops when they reopen.
