1 3/4 cups dry white wine

1 tablespoon lemon juice

3/4 pound Gruyere, shredded

3/4 pound Emmentaler, shredded

1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch

1/3 cup apple brandy

Freshly grated nutmeg, to taste

A pinch or 2 cayenne pepper, to taste


  1. Put the wine in a fondue pot and bring to a bubble over medium heat. Reduce the heat to a simmer. Add the lemon juice, then add the cheeses in handfuls, stirring in a figure-8 motion with wooden spoon. When the cheese is fully melted, stir the cornstarch into the brandy, in a small bowl until smooth, then add to cheese. Season with nutmeg and cayenne and serve over a warming station for your fondue pot.
