1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 pound Jarlsberg or Emmental, grated (8 cups)

Rub the inside of a medium saucepan with the garlic clove; discard. Add the wine, lemon juice, and mustard and whisk. Heat to simmering over medium heat. Add the cheese, 1 cup at a time, and stir with a wooden spoon until smooth.

Pour into a fondue pot, or set the saucepan on a trivet. Serve immediately with the bread and potatoes.
