Everyone thinks fondues are a Swiss invention. But like all awesome ideas, they didn't just spring up in one place.
In the borderlands of Northern Mexico, vaqueros cooked up 'fundidos' on campfires under desert stars.
They knew no food is as comforting as a flame-cooked pot of melted cheese – whether you're a Mexican cowboy, an Alpine shepherd, or a modern-day Mancunian with a hangover and a hunger on.
At El Taquero we serve our Queso Fundido with pico de gallo salsa and a side of tortilla chips or corn meal tortillas – made fresh by us in our Mexican tortilla press.
Add chorizo, chipotle shrimp or mushrooms and dip away. Stringy, satisfying and soothing, it's the ultimate cheese high.
