Cook Time10 mins
Total Time25 mins
Course: Main Course
Cuisine: American


  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • pound Gruyere shredded
  • pound Emmentaler shredded
  • pound Jarlsberg shredded
  • pinch nutmeg
  • freshly ground white pepper


  • Add the wine and lemon juice to the fondue pot and bring to a simmer. Add the cornstarch and stir to blend.
  • Add the cheese in small handfuls while constantly stirring until the cheese combines with the wine and melts. Do not stop stirring and do not let the cheese come to a boil. Simmer only, folks.
  • When all the cheese is added and melted into a creamy substance, add the pinch of nutmeg and a little freshly ground pepper.
  • Now give yourself 30 seconds to rest your arm before serving with all the prepped dipping ingredients.
  • If you don’t have enough “fondue forks” try using wooden skewers. They make great substitutes.


Enjoy with friends.
