Matt Lewis is enamored of fondue — in fact, he had a special pot made for dessert fondues at his former Manhattan shop, Chocolate Bar. His terrific cheddar-Jack cheese fondue includes whiskey, which adds a great kick.

ingredients

  • 1 pound extra-sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 pound Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 garlic cloves halved
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 3 tablespoons whiskey
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • Crusty bread, breadsticks and carrot sticks for serving

directions

In a bowl, toss the cheddar and Jack cheeses with the cornstarch. Rub the garlic cloves on the inside of a saucepan, then discard. Add the wine to the saucepan and bring to a simmer. Add the cheese mixture in 4 batches, whisking constantly over moderate heat and letting it melt completely between additions. Add the whiskey and stir just until the fondue begins to bubble, 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper; serve hot with bread, breadsticks and carrots.
