Wine Cheese Fondue Recipe
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 pound Swiss cheese, diced
- 1 1/2 tablespoons potato flour
- 1 cup dry white wine
- 1 pinch ground nutmeg
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons kirsch (cherry brandy)
- 1 (1 pound) loaf French or Italian bread, cut into 1 inch cubes
step 1: Rub the inside of the fondue pot (or a casserole/chafing dish) with a clove of garlic. If using a chafing dish, add just enough water to cover the bottom of the pan in order to protect it.
step 2: Dredge the diced cheese in potato flour and set aside.
step 3: Pour wine in the dish and heat. When the wine is heated, add the coated cheese. Bring to a slow simmer, stirring with a wire whisk until the cheese is melted and well-blended with the wine. Season with grated nutmeg, salt, and pepper. When ready to serve, whisk in kirsch. Serve with bread cubes.
