Classic Swiss Cheese Fondue

Classic Swiss Cheese Fondue


Rub halves of garlic around the inside of the fondue pot.

Add the white wine and lemon juice to the pot and heat until boiling.

Lower the heat and gradually stir in the grated cheeses until they're completely melted, stirring all the time.

Blend the Kirsch with the cornflour and add to the cheese mixture. Cook gently until the mixture is smooth making sure not to let it boil or it will burn.

Using the fondue forks, dip the bread cubes into the cheese and serve!

Hi Dani! Oh my gosh, I recently tried to make your chalocote cupcakes (the peppermint ones), but I could not find PAM and had ran out of oil. Long story, but they got stuck to the pan. Still. Delicious, just not pretty!Hope you are doing well. Looks like life is a lot of fun in DC. I will be returning back to Vermont in August. I'm looking forward to Vermont, yet will be sad to leave Japan. So it goes.

- How come you don't like the abpre-madebb fondue that comes from the box it's so easy to do, and the terutxe mmm THE terutxe. Seriously i agree it should be illegal I do the same recipe as yours but i'm not that fancy, i use regular black pepper, shame on me and it's alway a fun and delicious dinner. And I can feel it was the same for you guys looking at your photos!20/07/2010 10:59 AM
