Rub the inside of a fondue pot with the garlic and discard the garlic. Put the wine into the fondue pot and warm it over medium heat until hot but not boiling. Add the cheeses gradually to the wine. Reduce the heat, stirring often with a wooden spoon, until the cheese has melted. Add the paprika, white pepper and cognac or kirsch, and continue stirring until the fondue is thick and creamy. Let guests dip their own bread, meat, or vegetables.;
