1 tablespoon cornstarch

Swiss Gruyere Fondue Recipe at
Toss cheese with cornstarch in large bowl. Bring wine, lemon juice and garlic to simmer in heavy large saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium. Whisk 1 handful of cheese into wine until almost melted. Repeat with remaining cheese in about 5 more batches. Continue whisking until completely melted and fondue begins to bubble, about 1 minute. Whisk in Kirsch and nutmeg. Transfer to fondue pot and keep warm over fondue burner. Accompany with a platter of assorted dippers, fondue forks and plates.

DIPPERS: Cubed crusty bread, boiled new potatoes, rounds of smoked sausage, cubed cooked chicken, blanched asparagus, green beans, broccoli, cauliflower florets and carrot sticks.

MmmMmm Good!
I have not cooked this recipe but it is almost identical to the one I use. I use 1/2 lb. gruyer and 1/2 emmentaller cheese. And I use a Chablis. Other than that, they are the same. This is the best cheese fodue ever!
