Swiss Cheese Fondue

Cheese fondue is one that doesn’t have to be as formal with using fondue forks. You can easily get away with dipping it like any other dip out there. Your guests will appreciate it!

If you are bringing cheese fondue as a dip served at say, a potluck, you can easily put it in a crockpot on low heat. But keep a watchful eye on it because the cheese can begin to “break” and oil will sit at the surface. The cheese can also form into a brick as you try to stir it.

Fun fact: Despite calling this Swiss cheese fondue, Jarlsberg is not a type of Swiss cheese as most of us would think by the holey appearance. It actually originates in Norway.

What you need to make Swiss cheese fondue:

  • Smoked Gruyère
  • Jarlsberg
  • Dry White Wine, like Sauvignon Blanc
  • Garlic Powder
  • Cornstarch

Dippers for your fondue:

  • Rye Bread
  • Pumpernickel Bread
  • Sourdough Bread
  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower
  • Baby Carrots
  • Tortilla Chips
  • Green Apples

Fondue Etiquette:

  • Do not eat directly off your fondue fork. Not only will the metal be hot, but the fork is quite sharp.
  • Do not double-dip back into the fondue pot after eating off of the piece of food.
  • Make sure you keep track of which fondue fork is yours.
  • Most forks come color coated with two forks in each color. Each guest or family member should receive two fondue forks to cook with.
  • If you are serving more than one course of fondue it’s important to give your guests fresh new fondue forks that are clean.
  • Remember to have FUN! Fondue is meant to be an enjoyable experience with your family and friends. It helps engage conversation.

Enjoy!
