Difficulty: Easy

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 4 minutes

Servings: 4


  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 1/2 cups dry white wine
  • 8 ounces Gruyère cheese
  • 8 ounces Emmentaler cheese
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • Ground white pepper
  • Pinch nutmeg
  • 1 baguette
  • 1 Granny Smith apple


Rub the cut sides of the garlic over the inside bottom and sides of a medium saucepan. Add the wine and bring to a simmer; reduce heat to medium-low. In a large bowl, toss the cheeses with the cornstarch. Slowly add the cheese mixture to the simmering wine, stirring constantly (back and forth as well as around and around) about 4 minutes or until melted and smooth. Season to taste with white pepper and nutmeg.

Transfer the cheese mixture to a fondue pot. Serve with the bread and apple slices for dipping.
