This recipe for cheese fondue is a classic, with the dry white wine and Kirsh added to the cheese mixture. Buy a good baguette to dip into this delicious fondue.
- 1/2 pound gruyere, coarsely grated cheese
- 1/2 pound emmental, coarsely grated cheese
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1/2 garlic clove
- 2/3 cup white wine (Sauvignon Blanc is fine)
- 4 tablespoons kirsch (dry cherry brandy)
- Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
- Pinch of freshly ground black pepper
Preparation time 15mins
Cooking time 25mins
Toss the two cheeses together with the cornstarch.
Rub the inside of a heavy saucepan with the cut garlic clove.
Add wine and 2 tablespoons of Kirsch. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and add the cheese mixture, stirring, until mixture is hot and smooth. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of Kirsch if mixture is too thick.
Season with nutmeg and pepper, to taste.
Transfer to a fondue pot and serve immediately with dippers of choice (i.e. bread cubes or apples).
