  • 4 ounces dry white wine
  • 3 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 1/2 pound Emmenthaler cheese grated
  • 1/2 pound Gruyere cheese grated
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 ounce cherry liqueur like Kirshwasser (optional)


  • In your fondue pot heat together dry white wine and garlic. In a large bowl combine cheeses and sprinkle 2 tablespoons of cornstarch over the cheese and mix together. Add lemon juice to white wine mixture.
  • When the garlic becomes fragrant add 1/3 of the cheese to the fondue pot and stir in cheese. When this cheese has melted add an additional 1/3 of the cheese and stir until melted. 
  • Add remaining amount of cheese. Stir and blend until the cheese has the texture of honey. Before serving add some fresh cracked black pepper and 1-ounce cherry-flavored liqueur like Kirshwasser (optional).
  • It is important to watch the temperature of your fondue pot.  Overheating the mixture may make the cheese clump.  Should your cheese start to clump, add a splash of warm wine, and reduce the temperature of the fondue pot.
  •  Serve with crusty bread, raw broccoli flowerettes, raw baby-cut carrots, or anything else you might like to dip.
