cups shredded Gruyere or Swiss cheese (12 ounces)
cups shredded Emmentaler, Gruyere, or Swiss cheese (8 ounces)
cups dry white wine
tablespoons kirsch or dry sherry
teaspoon ground nutmeg
teaspoon ground white pepper
Dippers: French bread or rye bread, cut into 1-inch cubes and toasted,** precooked broccoli or cauliflower florets or bias-sliced carrots.
- Bring shredded cheeses to room temperature. Toss with flour; set aside.
- Heat wine in a large saucepan 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 make sure the cheese is melted before adding more. Stir until mixture bubbles gently.
- Stir in milk, kirsch or sherry, nutmeg, and pepper. Transfer cheese mixture to a fondue pot. Keep mixture bubbling gently over a fondue burner. Serve with dippers. If mixture becomes too thick, stir in a little warm milk. Serves 12.
