  1. Rub the garlic all over the inside of your fondue pot, leaving the crushed pieces in the bottom. You can also make fondue in a regular sauce pan and transfer to the fondue pot, but why get two pans all crazy cheesy? Add the white wine and sherry to the pot and heat over medium-low heat.
  2. Toss the cheese cubes in cornstarch to coat. When the wine is hot, add the cheese. Stir slowly with a wooden spoon at first and then use a whisk. Stir constantly to keep it from scorching on the bottom of the pot. When the cheese has melted, remove it from the heat and grate in a little nutmeg. Season with salt and pepper to taste. The fondue should be smooth and coat a wooden spoon. If it seems to runny, add more cheese. If it is too thick, add a splash more wine --sparingly.
  3. Prepare your fondue pot base and keep fondue warm over low heat. Get out the good linen napkins and set the table. This is a meal to be proud of!

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.
