Iconic Dishes of the '70s, '80s, '90s, and '00s

And nothing was more fun or communal than fondue. Those groovy pots defined a decade's worth of dinner parties. And although it might be most frequently associated with simple bread cubes and gooey Gruyère, the sky was the limit when it came to combinations – from beef chunks dipped in sizzling oil to marshmallows dunked in melted chocolate.
