My mom and I decided to make fondue for dinner one night while I was visiting for Thanksgiving. I hadn’t made it in years so I sounded like fun. It’s so easy and a fun for a casual dinner or cocktail party.



3 cups shredded Swiss cheese (12 oz)

3 cups shredded Gruyère cheese (12 oz)

4 tsp cornstarch

1 clove garlic, minced

1 3/4 cups dry white wine

1 TBSP Kirsch or Sherry

1/8 tsp ground black pepper

1/8 tsp nutmeg


Crusty baguette, cubed or torn

Sliced apples

Blanched broccoli and/or cauliflower

Grape tomatoes


  1. Shred cheeses. Place in a large bowl and mix with cornstarch to coat.
  2. In a large saucepan heat wine until just simmering. Reduce heat to low.
  3. Begin adding cheese slowly, allowing to melt before adding more. Stir until mixture is completely melted and bubbly.
  4. Add Kirsch or Sherry if using, pepper and nutmeg.
  5. Transfer to fondue pot with low heat. Serve with dippers.
