Classic Fondue in French Style
Here is a classic cheese fondue recipe generously provided by them.
Dry white wine (Domaine Giachino Abymes from the Savoie)
White pepper from a mill
fresh grated nutmeg
Bergkäse Alpenblumer, grated
Gruyère Vieux, grated
clove of garlic, minced
1. Make a slurry with the Kirschwasser and the cornstarch. It should be thick, but pourable. Use more or less Kirschwasser to get a consistency you like. Set at the ready, next to the stove.
2. In an enameled cast iron fondue pot, add the wine, salt, pepper and nutmeg and bring to a boil.
3. Add the grated cheese all at once.
4. Whisk over heat until the cheese has melted.
5. Add the minced garlic. Whisk in your slurry, a little at a time, until the fondue has a pleasant texture.
6. Adjust the seasoning and serve hot.
