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.
