"My husband and I love to indulge in special 'date nights', which always include a fun movie, a bottle of wine, nibbles, and his fabulous fondues. I help by preparing the accoutrements to his masterpieces. This is by far the best creation yet!"

  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!

Footnotes

  • Serve-With Ideas:
  • Use fresh baguette slices or chunks of flavorful artisan breads, lightly blanched vegetables, fruit (fresh figs and green apples are our favorites), cooked and sliced flavored sausages or chicken, and an array of relishes, jellies (pepper jelly rocks with this), mustards, olives, hot peppers, capers, cornichons, and spreads--whatever you have on hand.

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 cornstarc...

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...

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...

Delicious!

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. ...

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.

Let it sit a little before serving to let it coagulate a bit so it is not runny when you eat it. Other than that, this makes a delicious fondue! We used grilled chicken, apples, and baked french...
