Swiss Cheese Fondue

Swiss Cheese Fondue

Serves 8

We know that cheese fondues like this one are usually enjoyed with hunks of crusty bread for dipping. But use artichoke hearts, steamed broccoli, roasted brussels sprouts or potato wedges and you won't be disappointed either. Add a sprinkle of cayenne pepper with the nutmeg, if desired.

  • 1/2 pound Emmentaler, grated
  • 1/2 pound Le Gruyère, grated
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 clove garlic, cut or slightly crushed
  • 1 1/2 cups white wine such as a Chenin Blanc
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 2 loaves bread with thick crust, cut into 1-inch cubes

Combine cheeses with flour in a medium bowl and set aside. Rub the inside of the fondue pot with garlic. Heat wine in fondue pot over medium heat until warm. Add lemon juice. Add cheese mixture gradually, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon until melted and cheese-wine mixture has the consistency of a creamy sauce. Add pepper and nutmeg. Bring to boil. Remove pot and put on lighted burner on table (or bring pot to table and set on a trivet). Adjust flame of burner so fondue continues bubbling lightly. Serve with bread cubes.
