sketch of Bob above the Cheese Fondue recipe.

The great fondue craze of the 1960's and 70's has made a comeback...so go dust off one of the three fondue pots you got as a wedding gift and enjoy some cheese fondue again!

SWISS CHEESE FONDUE SAUCE (from AYN section 8 cookbook)

4 c. (1 lb.) shredded Swiss cheese
3 T. flour
1 lg. clove garlic
2 c. dry white wine
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 t. nutmeg

Dredge grated cheese with flour. Rub the fondue pot with the clove of garlic. Pour in the wine and heat over low heat til just below the boiling point – do not boil. Add cheese by the tablespoon, stirring with a fork til each tablespoon is absorbed. Continue stirring til the mixture starts to bubble slightly – it must not boil. Add seasonings. Keep warm til ready to serve or the sauce could break. This cheese fondue sauce recipe was taken on Ask Your Neighbor back in 1963!
