How do you choose the best cheese?
A good cheese fondue starts with choosing the cheese. You can buy a ready-to-use cheese mix for fondue at the store. But of course, it’s more fun to look for the best combination of various hard, tasty cheeses yourself. How much cheese do you need? Allow around 200 grams per person and use cheese that melts well, like mature Gouda. Add some sharper cheese for extra taste. Old cheese, for example, or blue cheese such as gorgonzola.
Preparing your cheese fondue
Take your cheese fondue pot and rub garlic on the inside for extra taste. Grate all the cheeses and melt them in the fondue pot. Add some dry white wine (approximately 1/3 of the quantity of cheese) so that you have a smooth mixture. You can also use beer. For people who don’t want alcohol, milk is an ideal replacement. Bind the cheese mixture with cornstarch if it is too runny. Add lemon juice for a touch of freshness or go for extra tang with a little spoonful of mustard.
