Fondue is great whether you are celebrating with your loved one, or with friends and family! We normally enjoy it by itself with a simple salad on the side and some nice desserts!

Classic Fondue
serves 2-3 as a main dish

Ingredients
1/2 garlic clove
1/8 cup of Kirsch
1 tsp cornstarch
200 g of Gruyère, grated
200 g of Emmental, grated
3/4 c dry wine with nice acidity {such as Sauvignon blanc}
crusty, country style bread {breads made with yeast will help enhance the flavor of the cheese}

1. Rub the inside of the fondue pot with the garlic clove. Discard clove.
2. In the pot, combine cheese and wine. On a stove top heat mixture over medium-low, stirring constantly until the cheese is melted  {about 10 min}
3. Meanwhile, dissolve cornstarch in Kirsch.
4. Add dissolved cornstarch to cheese and stir until smooth {about 15 min}

Now transfer the fondue pot from the stove top to the stand and enjoy!

Drink pairing ~ to offset the richness of this dish, pair it with a dry white wine like Sauvignon blanc.

Hope you have a lovely Valentine’s Day!
