"The best fondue ever; made with beer and three kinds of cheese! Enjoy this recipe as a snack or a meal! Great for parties or great to trick your kids into eating their veggies. You will love this smooth, flavorful dish. Serve with bread, veggies, and meats of all kinds. We like green peppers, grape tomatoes, carrots, mushrooms, cucumbers, celery, ham, and salami for dipping." — Chef Tarek

1 1/8 cups
shredded extra-sharp white Cheddar cheese
1 1/8 cups
shredded Swiss cheese
freshly shredded Parmesan cheese
1 1/2 tablespoons
1/2 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle
Irish stout beer (such as Guinness®)
hot pepper sauce (such as Cholula®)
ground dry mustard
freshly ground black pepper to taste
Made this exactly as listed except used 1/2 tbsp Dijon mustard (because I didn't have any dry mustard) and a little extra Guinness (depends on the consistency you want) and it was AMAZING! My guests raved about it because it had more flavor than most fondue, but it did not overpower and the cheese taste still came through! Just make sure you use good cheese (we used aged extra sharp cheddar wheel cheese)...SO GOOD
One of the best fondues I have tasted yet. The cheese is smooth with a hint of stout to it. You can still enjoy with flavor of the bread, meat, or veggie without worrying about an overpowering cheese flavor. EXCELLENT!
It was good but very sharp. I would really have to be in the mood for it to make it again.
Delicious! Followed recipe exactly as written. Big hit with guests.
This is a terrific tasting fondue. We were looking for something different than our usual cheese fondue. Made it exactly to the recipe and it worked perfectly. We now use this as our standard cheese fondue. Also works great over a tea light as an appetizer. YUM
