Fondue Recipe


Serves 4

  • 1 clove garlic, halved
  • 290ml/½ pint white wine
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 400g Fondue Mix
  • 1 tsp cornflour
  • 1 tbsp Kirsch
  • Cubed bread pieces, for dipping

How to make it

This fondue recipe is simple, fun and outrageously cheesy!

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!

This tartiflette with Reblochon de Savoie is ideal with a crisp dry wine from Savoie or Switzerland, the same sort of wine you would drink with a fondue.
