#1 Traditional Fondue Fribourgeois - Legendary and Original by rabino
What Hesser and Stubbs say : Rabino's fastidious technique is the soul of his recipe: he starts by having you rub the inside of the pot with a crushed garlic clove, add and warm white wine and then gradually work in the cheese so you get a smooth texture.
See the second entry after the jump.
#2 Coconut Cajeta & Chocolate Fondue by hardlikearmour
What Hesser and Stubbs say : We loved the idea of fondue made with chocolate and cajeta (a close cousin of dulce de leche), and when we saw that hardlikearmour used coconut milk to make her cajeta, well -- there was no holding us back. Her fondue is silken and almost custardy, punctuated with rum and vanilla and generously salted, the way we like caramel to be.

- 1 cup dry white wine, such as sauvignon blanc or pinot grigio, plus more as needed
- 1/2 pound Emmentaler cheese, grated
- 1/2 pound Gruyère cheese, grated

Traditionally fondue is cheese – but it has evolved into other dishes that consist of dippers dipped into a communal pot. Today we are doing a main dish fondue – sometimes called fondue bourguignonne. This dish consists of a hot oil or broth and you dip thin slices of meat or veggies.
Broth Fondue is such a fun main dish. I was first introduced to this broth fondue at a restaurant. We piled all of our veggies into the pot and pulled them out as they were done. Cooking your food as a group is a fun and interactive way to eat a meal. The broth is seasoned and flavorful so your food comes out delicious.
These are fun – because you can really serve whatever you like. We like thinly sliced beef, shrimp, and thinly sliced chicken. We also like mushrooms, carrots, zucchini, carrots and broccoli. Any veggie or meat sliced thin will work. Just make sure they are small or thinly sliced so that they cook quickly.
This meal is such a fun Valentine’s dinner. It gives you the chance to socialize over dinner and it is so delicious. I recommend using a fondue pot for this course rather than a saucepan, because you want to be able to cook at the table. I’ve listed a few for you to consider below.

The ingredients you'll need
You'll only need a few simple ingredients to make this tasty cheese fondue. The exact measurements are included in the recipe card below. Here's an overview of what you'll need:
Cheeses: I like to use shredded Gruyere and shredded Swiss cheese. 🧀
Cornstarch: Just 1 tablespoon helps to nicely thicken the fondue. If you're worried about GMOs in corn, you can use organic cornstarch.
Dry mustard: You can find it in the spice aisle next to the other spices.
Dry white wine: I like to use sauvignon blanc, which is also very nice to serve with the fondue.
- 1 garlic clove, halved
- 1 pound Gruyère cheese, grated
- 1/2 pound Emmentaler cheese or other Swiss cheese, grated
- 1 cup dry white wine
- 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
- 1 1/2 tablespoons kirsch
- Freshly ground pepper
- Freshly grated nutmeg
Rub the inside of a cheese fondue pot or medium enameled cast-iron casserole with the garlic clove discard the garlic. Combine the grated Gruyère and Emmentaler with the wine, cornstarch and lemon juice in the fondue pot and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until the cheeses begin to melt, about 5 minutes. Add the kirsch and a generous pinch each of pepper and nutmeg and cook, stirring gently, until creamy and smooth, about 10 minutes don't overcook the fondue or it will get stringy. Serve at once.
