Best Formula Three-Cheese Fondue

Best Formula Three-Cheese Fondue

"We tried a couple of recipes; this was voted the best! The Gruyere gives a very sweet and nutty flavour to the fondue, the sharp Cheddar makes it tangy, and the Emmentaler blends it all. Cooking the flour first helps the mixture not to be so pasty and powdery."

  1. Bring the wine to a boil in a small saucepan.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium low heat. Whisk in the flour, and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly to avoid sticking and burning.
  3. Once the flour is cooked, stir the wine into the flour mixture slowly. Use a whisk to smooth the mixture. Slowly add cubes of Gruyere, Cheddar, and Emmentaler cheese; stir until cheese is melted. Transfer cheese mixture to fondue pot. Keep warm over low flame.

I made this for my husband and he loved it! I do have a few suggestions - First, DO use a Sauvignon Blanc for the wine. Second, SHRED the cheeses and toss the tablespoon (or so) of flour in wit...

I'm rating this four only because of the changes I made. First... don't use cubed cheese - use shredded. Second make sure you pick the right wine. I decided "white wine" was WAY too vague. I use...

I made this for a christmas fondue party on the 22nd. It was fabulous! The cheeses blended easily, the wine and chedder added just the right tang. I'll make it again for New Year's! (I ended...

This recipe was a big hit with my family. It was delicious with apples and french bread. Grating the cheese did help to make it melt faster, and a few drops of lemon juice took care of the clu...

Really good fondue! I used a half pound of each cheese (which I shredded and added to the pot a handful at a time till melted), a New Zealand sauvignon blanc, and served with veggies, granny sm...
