cups shredded Gruyere or Swiss cheese (12 ounces)
cups shredded Emmentaler, Gruyere, or Swiss cheese (8 ounces)
1-inch-thick slices herb bread or French bread, cut into 1-inch cubes, and/or broccoli or cauliflower florets
cups dry white wine
tablespoons kirsch or dry sherry
teaspoon ground nutmeg
teaspoon white pepper
- Let shredded cheeses stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Toss cheeses with flour; set aside.
- Meanwhile, to toast the bread cubes, place on a baking sheet and bake in a 350 degreee F oven for 5 to 7 minutes or until crisp and toasted; set aside. To precook broccoli or cauliflower, in a saucepan bring a small amount of water to boiling; add florets. Simmer, covered, about 3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain and rinse with cold water; set aside.
- In a large saucepan heat wine over medium heat until small bubbles rise to the surface. Just before wine boils, reduce heat to low and stir in the cheese mixture, a little at a time, stirring constantly and making sure cheese is melted before adding more. Stir until the mixture bubbles gently.
- Stir in milk, kirsch, nutmeg, and white pepper. Transfer cheese mixture to a fondue pot. Keep mixture bubbling gently over a fondue burner. (If mixture becomes too thick, stir in a little more milk.) If desired, sprinkle with paprika. Serve with toasted bread cubes and/or florets.
- Makes 3-1/2 cups fondue (12 appetizer servings)
