Because who doesn’t love a cheese fondue...? A whole pot of delicious oozing melted Swiss cheese, to dip your favourite ingredients into. You can mix and match the cheeses, and the dipping ingredients, so get creative! Fondues are a fun and tasty way to share the joy of cheese with loved ones over winter.
NB: if you don't have Kirsch, you can alternatively use a tablespoon of brandy or gin.
- Halve the garlic clove and rub around the outside of the fondue pot, or a cast-iron casserole dish.
- Combine the cheese and wine in the pot and cook over a moderate heat for around five minutes, until the cheese is beginning to melt.
- Mix the corn-starch with the Kirsch and add to the pot to thicken. Then season with a grating of nutmeg and a pinch of black pepper, and the lemon juice, and gently stir until creamy and smooth, this should take around 10 minutes.
- Serve immediately with your dipping ingredients of choice! We chose fennel salami, crusty bread and pickles, but you could also dip new potatoes, different salamis or grapes.
