Traditional Swiss Fondue
3 1/2 cups Swiss cheese, shredded
2 tbsp All-purpose flour
1 cup White wine
2 tbsp Lemon juice, fresh
2 tsp Garlic, finely chopped
1 oz Cherry-flavored liqueur (Kirschwasser recommended)
1/2 tsp Pepper, freshly ground
Dash Nutmeg, grated
• Toss the cheese with the flour in a bowl. Place a metal bowl over a saucepan filled with two inches of water. You may also use a conventional double boiler. Bring the water to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and pour the wine into the bowl. Stir in the lemon juice and garlic using a fork. Cook for 30 seconds stirring constantly.
• Add half of the cheese, and stir constantly until the cheese is melted. Add the remaining cheese a small amount at a time stirring constantly. Pour the liqueur slowly around the edge of the bowl. Pull the cheese mixture away from the edge of the bowl and cook for about one minute or until the alcohol cooks off. Stir the liqueur into the cheese. Stir the pepper in gently. Pour into a warm fondue pot and keep warm over low heat. Garnish with a dash of nutmeg.
