TIPS

CHEESE TYPES

Lots of hard cheeses will work in fondue. We used cheddar as it has a really good flavour, plus Gruyère which makes the fondue gooey and stringy.

REHEAT TO REUSE

Once taken off the heat, the fondue will start to thicken and set after 5-10 mins. Simply reheat to loosen the sauce.
