Perfect Cheese Fondue

Cheese fondue is an amazing dish made with melted cheeses and other ingredients, and served with chunks of bread for dipping. Making fondue is really simple, and largely just a matter of adding your ingredients to a fondue dish and letting them melt and blend.

Some fondue sets use a flame while others are electric. You can also get different kinds, so if you like to make chocolate fondue or meat fondue, you might like to collect the fondue kits, since the thick earthenware cheese fondue bowl isn’t the one needed to make meat or chocolate fondue.

Our recipe for cheese fondue is very simple to make and you will love the authentic cheese flavors. Serve this with baguette bread cut into pieces and everyone will really enjoy your homemade Swiss fondue. You might like to serve other items for dipping too, such as chopped celery, button mushrooms, or even fruit chunks.

You will need Swiss and Gruyere cheeses to make this cheese fondue recipe, along with garlic, white wine, salt, and nutmeg for flavor. Feel free to use different cheeses, omit the garlic, wine and/or nutmeg, or double the quantities if you have a large enough fondue kit. If you’re worried about your cheese separating, squeeze the juice of 1/2 a lemon into the wine before you add the cheese. This doesn’t affect the flavor much but keeps the consistency smooth.
