Classic Fondue with Fruit, Vegetables and Bread
- 1 garlic clove
- 1 1/2 cups dry white wine
- 1 pound Gruyere, grated
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 scratch fresh nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 pound assorted fruit, cleaned
- 1/2 pound assorted vegetables, cleaned
- 1/2 loaf baguette, cut in cubes
Preheat fondue pot.
Rub the inside, bottom and sides of a medium saucepan with the clove of garlic. Set the garlic aside. Heat the pan over medium-high heat. Pour in the white wine and turn the heat to high. Bring to a boil and turn heat down to simmer the wine. In a bowl, toss the cheese with the cornstarch until the cheese is completely coated. Slowly add in the cheese and stir with a wooden spoon until the cheese is melted thoroughly, about 3 to 4 minutes. With a fresh nutmeg and a nutmeg grater or box grater, scratch a pinch of nutmeg into the melted cheese and stir. Season with salt and pepper and pour into the fondue pot. Serve immediately with the fruit, vegetables and bread.
