Restaurant Recipe: Melting Pot Fondue

The Melting Pot Traditional Swiss Fondue

3 and 1/2 cups (14 oz.) shredded Swiss cheese
2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
1 cup white wine
2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
2 tsp. finely chopped garlic
1 oz. cherry-flavored liqueur (Kirschwasser recommended)
1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper
Dash of grated nutmeg

Toss the cheese with the flour in a bowl. Place a metal bowl over a
saucepan filled with two inches of water. You may also use a
conventional double boiler. Bring the water to a boil over high
heat. Reduce the heat to medium and pour the wine into the bowl.
Stir in the lemon juice and garlic using a fork. Cook for 30
seconds stirring constantly.

Add half of the cheese, and stir constantly until the cheese is
melted. Add the remaining cheese a small amount at a time stirring
constantly. Pour the liqueur slowly around the edge of the bowl.
Pull the cheese mixture away from the edge of the bowl and cook for
about one minute or until the alcohol cooks off. Stir the liqueur
into the cheese. Stir the pepper in gently. Pour into a warm fondue
pot and keep warm over low heat. Garnish with a dash of nutmeg.
