Fondue is a fun, hands on and entertaining way to enjoy cheese. The perfect way to get your dinner party going!
- 41.7g (25.7g saturated)
- 33.4g (7.3g sugars)
- 500g charlotte potatoes
- 2 chicory
- 4 carrots
- Bunch of spring onions
- ½ rustic sourdough loaf
- 1 garlic clove, halved
- 350ml dry white wine
- 1 tsp cornflour
- 300g Emmental, roughly grated
- 200g Comté cheese or Gruyère, roughly grated
- 300g Reblochon cheese, rind removed and cut into chunks
- 1 tbsp Kirsch or Calvados
- Cook the potatoes in a pan of boiling water for 15 minutes or until tender. Cool, drain, peel and cut in half. Trim and unfurl the chicory. Peel and cut the carrots into sticks and trim the spring onions. Finally, cut the bread into bite-size cubes. Arrange everything on a platter.
- Rub the fondue pan with the cut side of the garlic, then discard. Set the pan over a medium heat. In a bowl, mix 1 tbsp of the wine with the cornflour. Pour the rest of the wine into the pan. As soon as it begins to bubble, add the cornflour paste and a little of each cheese, stirring constantly with a wooden spatula. As the cheese melts, add a little more and keep stirring until you have melted all the cheese and it has become a smooth, gooey sauce.
- Finally, stir in the Kirsch or Calvados and season to taste with black pepper. Reduce the heat to low and invite your guests to dip the food from the platter into the fondue.
You’ll need a fondue set for this recipe – it helps to have fondue forks for the bread and potatoes. Change the dipping ingredients according to taste.
