Swiss Cheese Fondue

Swiss Cheese Fondue

We know that cheese fondues like this one are usually enjoyed with hunks of crusty bread for dipping. But use artichoke hearts, steamed broccoli, roasted brussels sprouts or potato wedges and you won't be disappointed either. Recipe from the Whole Foods Market website: http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/40.

  • Prep time:30 Minutes
  • Cook time:1 Hour


  • 1/2 pound(s) Emmentaler, grated
  • 1/2 pound(s) Gruyère, grated
  • 1 clove(s) of garlic, cut or slightly crushed
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) of white wine such as a Chenin Blanc

  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) nutmeg
  • 2 loaf(s) bread with thick crust cut into 1-inch cubes


Combine Emmentaler and Le Gruyère with flour, stir and set aside (either in medium bowl or in a plastic bag). Rub the inside of the fondue pot with cut garlic clove. Pour wine into pot and heat over medium heat until warm. Add lemon juice. Add cheese by handful, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon until melted and cheese-wine mixture has the consistency of a creamy sauce. Add pepper and nutmeg (you can add cayenne or other spices too). Bring to boil. Remove pot and put on lighted burner on table.
