Homemade Fondue: It’s Easier Than You Think

It’s time to do away with the idea that fondue is only for special occasions or dining out. This recipe is simple, decadent, and down-right mouthwatering. The mix of garlic, white wine, and lemon is an ideal compliment to these Swiss cheeses.

In terms of vehicles for your fondue (apart from a spoon, of course), try your favorite steamed veggie, roasted or boiled potatoes, classic crusty bread, or even fruit like apples and pears.

The Recipe

1 clove garlic
1 cup white wine
Gruyere – 1 pound, shredded
Ementhaler – ½ pound, shredded
1 Lemon
1 tablespoon Kirsch
1 pinch Nutmeg

  1. Rub the inside of a small pot with garlic. Discard the garlic.
  2. Add wine and juice of 1 lemon and bring to a simmer over medium heat.
  3. Slowly whisk in the cheese until smooth. Add kirsch and nutmeg.
