dry white wine
Brie cheese, rind removed and cubed
freshly grated nutmeg
salt and white pepper to taste
Tried this last night for a "girls' night out" with friends. It was a big hit - - - flavors are wonderful. One tip: to remove the "rind" from the brie, put cheese in freezer for 10 minutes and the peeling is a snap.
This recipe has potential but not as is. All you can taste is alcohol and LOTS of it. My husband and I tried it because I was considering it for a party. We ended up having to double the cheese and it still tasted like liquid wine.
I absolutely love this fondue!
A little tip: I mix the cornstarch with a bit of water to make a sort of paste, then add that to the pot with the wine and cheese. I think that helps the cornstarch "set" and give the fondue thickness. Otherwise I've had it come out too lumpy.
I served this for Valentines Day for my husband. We both loved it. I did end up being a little on the salty side. Neither of us seemed to mind it as it wasn't overpoweringly salty. (I should have tasted it before adding additional salt) I don't keep wine or sherry on hand but I did have white cooking wine and cooking sherry so there wasn't an alcohol taste like some of the other reviewers found. Since there was only two of us eating I cut the recipe in half, except for the garlic, I still crushed up 2 cloves and it was perfect. I served this with beer bread, cooked chicken (seasoned with salt and pepper) apples and veggies. We both loved it!
This is a great and easy way to make a cheese sauce. Although I was apprehensive at first, I really liked the cornstarch tossed with the cheese. Much easier than making a roux based sauce. It melted nicely without getting grainy. I also liked that it contained ingredients that I had around the kitchen. I might change up the cheese next time, it was a little too salty. Could have been the butterkase cheese I added to increase volume.
I elected to make this fondue for a wine & cheese party based on its simple ingredient list and good reviews. This was the worst fondue I ever tasted. Peeling the brie also proved cumbersome. It was very bitter and the taste of alcohal was stong. I used a white table wine as opposed to a dry white wine and maybe this substituation, which I deemed minimal, caused the problem.
This was good, not my favorite, but my hubby really liked it. I liked that it was not too thick. Went great with granny smith apples and bread.
