  1. Rub the inside of the fondue pot (or a casserole/chafing dish) with a clove of garlic. If using a chafing dish, add just enough water to cover the bottom of the pan in order to protect it.
  2. Dredge the diced cheese in potato flour and set aside.
  3. Pour wine in the dish and heat. When the wine is heated, add the coated cheese. Bring to a slow simmer, stirring with a wire whisk until the cheese is melted and well-blended with the wine. Season with grated nutmeg, salt, and pepper. When ready to serve, whisk in kirsch. Serve with bread cubes.

This is a really fool-proof fondue recipe! I used a bit of Gueyere cheese. Many raves.

This is a decent recipe. I agree with others when they say use two different types of cheese. I also add 2-3 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice and substitute corn starch for potato flour. (I d...

Followed recipe to the letter. Did not work well, cheese would have melted better if grated.

Very delicious, however, I did leave out the nutmeg and the brandy. Thanks Marc!

Good basic fondue recipe. I skipped the Kirsch and the nutmeg just because I was going for a quick lunch and didn't want to bother taking the time. Used Comte cheese (French Gruyere) and it was ...
