Making 4 portions of fondue

Food - one meal

We estimate that a Swiss citizen eats 4 fondues (i.e., 4 portions) in a year. The 4 portions correspond to 800 g of cheese, 15 cl of wine, two garlic cloves, and 1 kg of bread. You cook it on a cast iron pot and stove that last 100 fondues and eat it with fondue forks that last 50 fondues. The pot is heated with 25g of methylated spirit.
