DIRECTIONS

  • The optimal choice of pots is a steel or cast iron medium sized pot (2 quart) with an enameled interior.
  • In a medium sized bowl, combine the three cheeses and toss with the flour.
  • Rub the inside of the fondue pot with the garlic halves.
  • Add the wine and heat over medium heat until hot, but not boiling.
  • Stir in lemon juice and kirsch.
  • Add a handful of cheese at a time to the wine mixture, stirring constantly and not adding more cheese until the previous has melted, bubbling gently and has the appearance of a light creamy sauce season with pepper and nutmeg.
  • Remove the pot from the heat and place over an alcohol safety burner on the table.
  • Adjust the burner flame so the fondue continues to bubble gently.
  • Serve with plenty of crusty bread cubes.
