Classic Cheese Fondue


For 4 people

  • 2 cup(s) shredded natural Swiss cheese (8 oz.)
  • 2 cup(s) shredded Gruyere cheese (8 oz.)
  • 1 tablespoon(s) cornstarch
  • 1 clove garlic, cut into halves
  • 1 cup(s) dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon(s) lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 ounce(s) kirsch or dry sherry
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon(s) white pepper
  • 1 French bread, cut into 1-inch cubes


Toss cheeses with cornstarch until coated. Rub garlic on bottom and side of heavy saucepan or skillet; add wine. Heat over low heat just until bubbles rise to surface (wine should not boil). Stir in lemon juice. Gradually add cheeses, about 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly with wooden spoon over low heat until cheeses are melted. Stir in kirsch, salt and white pepper. Remove to earthenware fondue dish; keep warm over low heat. Spear bread cubes with fondue forks; dip and swirl in fondue with stirring motion. If fondue becomes too thick, stir in 1/4 to 1/2 cup heated wine.
