Tags:fondue, classic fondue, swiss cheese, swiss fondue

Serving Size:Serves 4-6


  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 1/2 cups dry wine like, Marc Cellars Chardonnay or Quinton Chardonnay
  • 1/2 lb Gruyere, grated
  • 1/2 lb Aged Swiss, Grated
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 scratch fresh nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


Serve this classic Swiss cheese fondue with assorted fruit like sliced apples, and pears, cut vegetables and bread cubes.


Preheat fondue pot.

Rub the inside, bottom and sides of a medium saucepan with the clove of garlic. Set the garlic aside. Heat the pan over medium/high heat. Pour in the white wine and turn the heat to high. Bring to a boil and turn heat down to simmer the wine. In a bowl, toss the cheese with the cornstarch until the cheese is completely coated. 

Slowly add in the cheese and stir with a wooden spoon until the cheese is melted thoroughly, about 3 to 4 minutes. With a fresh nutmeg and a nutmeg grater or box grater, scratch a pinch of nutmeg into the melted cheese and stir. Season with salt and pepper and pour into the fondue pot. Serve immediately with the fruit, vegetables and bread
