God I know. Does melting cheese in the microwave then eating it with a spoon count as fondue?! @luciennesimpson @Rindwash @SundayBrunchC4

La Fondue Suisse on Sunday Brunch C4, 4 January 2015

2 Jan

Switzerland is known for its traditional Cheese Fondue, originally a hearty peasant dish made with melted cheese, wine and bread and served in a communal pot. Due to their ability to melt well, many Swiss Cheese varieties lend themselves to use in Cheese Fondue, Switzerland’s national dish.

There is no standard recipe, nor is there even a single type of cheese that’s universally favoured for Swiss cheese fondue. One commonly used recipe is an equal blend of Gruyère and Vacherin Fribougeois, known as “moitiè-moitiè” or “half-half.” But if you’re in the east of Switzerland you may as well mix Gruyère with an Appenzeller. In Valais, a blend of Gruyère and Raclette, while in Bern, Emmentaler is mostly used.

The following Swiss cheeses may be used to make a Swiss Fondue:

Gruyere / Vacherin fribourgeois / Emmentaler / Tilsiter / Appenzeller / Etivaz / Raclette

Ingredients for the moitié-moitié ( serves 4)
600g of semi-white bread , cut into cubes 2 to 3 cm
1 clove garlic
0.3 l of dry white wine
3 cc of corn starch
400g Vacherin Fribourgeois
400g grated Gruyère
5 cl kirsch 
pepper
no salt!

Preparation:
Grate or slice the cheese into small pieces.

Peel and crush the garlic clove and rub on the bottom of the caquelon pot

Dissolve the cornstarch in the kirsch.

Pour some of the wine into the pot, add the cheese and heat through very slowly , stirring
constantly with a wooden spoon until the mixture reaches the boiling point.

You may want to add a bit of the remaining wine alternatively if the texture is too thick ( it shall not be liquid either! ).

Add liaison with kirsch and season with pepper.

Place the pot on your candle warmer and maintain a constant temperature.

Prick bread cubes with a long fork and dip them in the fondue until they are well coated
with the cheese mixture.

It is important to regularly stir the contents of the pot, forming a figure of 8 ( resembling the figure of 8 formed by the cheese maker stirring curds in the Vat )

Warning: if you share a fondue in the company of Swiss guests , be very careful not to loose your piece of bread in the mixture, you probably will have to agree to fill out a pledge as a form of punishment.

In accordance with the democratic traditions of Switzerland, it will be for other diners to choose your pledge.
If you have your meal in a mountain refuge, expect for example to be asked to tour the shelter barefoot and butt naked in the snow …

Fondue is a very rich dish, you may accompany your fondue with some hot tea which will help the digestion.
