Ingredients

1 garlic clove, peeled and halved
1 cup Grüner Veltliner or other dry white wine
1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss (emmenthal) cheese
1 1/2 cups shredded gruyère cheese
1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon dry mustard
Freshly grated nutmeg
Pepper
Crusty French bread, cubed
Bockwurst or other mild German sausages, browned and cut into bite-size lengths
Asian pears, sliced into thin wedges

Preparation

1. Rub garlic clove around the inside of a 1-qt. fondue pot; discard clove. Pour wine into pot; warm over medium heat on the stovetop until bubbles start to rise.

2. Mix Swiss and gruyère cheeses with flour and dry mustard in a bowl.

3. Add cheese mixture to wine, a handful at a time, stirring gently after each addition until melted and smooth. Sprinkle lightly with nutmeg and pepper.

4. Set pot over its heat source, adjusting so fondue barely bubbles. Arrange French bread, sausages, and pears alongside.

5. Scrape bottom of pot occasionally to keep fondue from scorching as you spear and dip bread, sausages, and pears.
