New Years Appetizer: Cheese Fondue

December 27, 2010

With New Year’s Eve coming up, I thought I would share my favorite recipe for Fondue. A few years ago, while working with Wisconsin Cheese, I got to tour a few cheese-makers in Wisconsin. One of my favorite stops was touring Rose Kase where they served this amazing Cheese Fondue. What I love about this recipe is that the taste is beyond incredible, and there is no flour or cornstarch used. Enjoy this recipe on New Year’s Eve as an appetizer, and I assure you it will be a hit.

Cheese Fondue

Prep: 30 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes
Yield: 4 servings
3/4 pound Gruyere cheese, shredded
1/4 pound Fontina cheese, shredded
8 ounces Pinot Grigio or other light to medium body white wine
1/4 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 loaf crusty artisan bread or croissants, cut into chunks
1 Fresh apples, grapes, pears, sliced
1. Combine cheese and wine in a ceramic fondue pot or heavy saucepan, stirring well. Let stand to soak 15 to 30 minutes.

2. Heat the mixture over low heat 7 to 10 minutes, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Do not allow mixture to boil. When the cheese is completely melted, stir in the lemon juice and remove from heat. Transfer to a table-top burner.

3. Serve with bread and fruit.

Fontina must make this fondue nice and creamy, what a nice change from traditional fondue recipes. I also noticed that you soak the cheese and wine together,which I've never seen before, what does that do?

This would be so fun to serve on NYE. Love the idea of serving fondue with croissants. Happy New Year!

I will often put beer in my cheese fondue, but a nice wine would certainly fancy it up a bit. It sounds like a great idea for New Year's Eve.
