World Cuisine Wednesday

The cold weather is coming sooner than we think.  With all the winter sports like snowboarding, skiing and snowmobiling, I found it fitting to have this week’s recipe be from winter-friendly Switzerland.  I have for you the recipe for a nice, warm, gooey cheese fondue.

2 tbsp Kirsch
1 c. dry white wine
1 tsp cornstarch
¬Ω lb grated Gruyere cheese
¬Ω lb grated Emmentaler cheese
1 garlic clove, peeled, cut in two
1tbsp olive oil
¬Ω tsp nutmeg
¬Ω tsp ground black pepper

1 loaf crusty French bread, cut into small cubes
(You can also use cubed ham, apples, broccoli, baby potatoes and/or cauliflower for dipping)

Heat oil over medium low heat and add garlic.  Cook for about 2 minutes, until garlic is browned, then remove garlic.

Stirring constantly, add cheese and wine.  When cheese is melted halfway, add Kirsch and cornstarch and stir continuously until cheese fully melted.

Pour cheese from cooking pot to ready fondue pot.  Serve immediately.
