6 ounces sourdough bread cut into 1- to 1 1/2-inch chunks (1 1/2 qt.)

1/2 teaspoon dried lavender blossoms (optional)
1 cup (8 oz.) herb-flavor fresh chèvre (goat) cheese
2 Fuji apples (1/2 lb. each), rinsed, cored, and sliced

3. Reduce heat to medium-high, add chèvre, and stir until boiling, about 4 minutes. Add pepper to taste. Set pan over a candle or on an electric warming tray.

4. Use forks or thin wood skewers to spear bread and apple slices and dunk them into fondue.
