Suggestions for dipping
- STEP 1
Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Mix the vinegar with the cornflour and place in a heatproof bowl with the cheeses. Set over a pan of boiling water. Slowly melt the cheese, stirring occasionally. When it’s nearly melted, add the crème fraîche and a little black pepper, if you like. Lower the heat and keep warm.
- STEP 2
To make croutons, toss the bread in the oil and a little seasoning on a baking sheet, then bake for 10-15 mins until golden and crisp.
- STEP 3
To serve, put the cheese fondue on a large platter and arrange the croutons, veg and salamis alongside it.
