This traditional fondue recipe is pungent, tangy, and perfect with a bright, off-dry riesling as a festive, holiday party hors d'oeuvre.
- 16 ounces Gruyere cheese, rind cut off, cheese grated (6 cups packed)
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 3/4 cup dry white wine (such as Sauvignon Blanc)
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 to 3 tablespoons Kirsch (clear cherry brandy)
- Pinch of ground nutmeg
- Assorted dippers (see list below)
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.
