Champagne Fondue

Adapted By Brennan's 27 Sep 2018

Serving Size: Serves 2


4 teaspoons cornstarch

1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1 1/4 cups Prosecco or other sparkling wine

1 large shallot, chopped

2 cups (about 7 ounces) coarsely grated Gruyere Cheese

1 1/3 cups (about 5 ounces) coarsely grated Emmenthal cheese

1/2 cup (about 3 ounces) diced rindless Brie or Camembert cheese

generous pinch of ground nutmeg

pinch of ground white pepper

1 French bread baguette, crust left on, bread cut into 1-inch cubes

A sparkling twist on classic fondue.

Stir cornstarch and lemon juice in small bowl until cornstarch dissolves; set aside. Combine Champagne and shallot in a fondue pot or heavy medium saucepan; simmer over medium heat 2 minutes. Remove pot from heat. Add all cheeses and stir to combine. Stir in cornstarch mixture. Return fondue pot to medium heat and stir until cheeses are melted and smooth and fondue thickens and boils, about 12 minutes. Season fondue with nutmeg and white pepper. Place over candle or canned heat burner to keep warm. Serve with bread cubes.
