Gourmet Cheese 101

Making a Pot of Fondue.

Here are a few good tips:
  • The more cheeses you combine the more interesting the flavor of the fondue will be.
  • Start with a combination of three different types of cheeses totaling about 1 lb. chopped into several chunks.
  • Rub the inside of the sauce pan with ½ clove of garlic and throw the other ½ into the sauce pan.
  • Add two cups of dry white wine to the sauce pan with the cheese and begin to melt low and slow, stirring frequently.
  • When the cheese starts to bubble and thicken slightly add 2 tablespoons of corn starch and continue to stir until thickened.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste and transfer to fondue pot.
  • You may also add different herbs and spices like fresh thyme, chives or sautéed leeks.
  • Make sure that you have different breads along with plenty of beer and wine.
