  • 12 ounces Gruyere cheese, grated
  • 8 ounces Emmental or other imported Swiss cheese, grated
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups dry white wine
  • 1 clove garlic, finely grated or minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon powdered mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon cherry brandy, such as kirsch, optional
  • For serving: cubed baguette, assorted sliced raw vegetables such as celery and bell pepper and assorted sliced fruit such as apples, figs and pears
Directions
  • Special equipment: a fondue pot or slow cooker

  • Toss the Gruyere and Emmental with the flour in a medium bowl.

  • Combine the wine and garlic in a fondue pot or medium saucepan and bring to a simmer. Gradually add the cheese mixture while stirring constantly, simmering until the cheese is incorporated and thoroughly melted. Stir in the mustard, nutmeg and cherry brandy if using.

  • If you are using a fondue pot, set it over its burner. Otherwise, pour the mixture into a slow cooker and set it to "warm." Serve with an assortment of dippers such as baguette cubes, sliced vegetables and sliced fruit.
