  • 1 garlic clove, halved
  • ½ pint white wine
  • 1tsp lemon juice
  • 8oz emmental cheese
  • 8oz gruyere cheese
  • 1tsp cornflour
  • 1tblsp kirsch (optional)
  • Cubed bread, for dipping


  • STEP 1
    Rub the inside of the fondue pot with the halves of garlic.
  • STEP 2
    Add the wine and lemon juice to the pot and heat until boiling. Lower the heat and gradually stir in the cheeses until melted, stirring all the time.

    If using kirsch, blend with the cornflour, otherwise use water. Add to the cheese mixture and cook gently until the mixture is smooth - don't let it boil or it will burn.
