Recipes

Fondue 
Recipe from Alpine Cooking by Meredith Erikson
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 ½ cups dry white wine, such as Chablis or Riesling 
  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons kirsch
  • 2 cups grated Emmental cheese
  • 2 cups grated Gruyere cheese
  • Freshly ground white pepper
  • Freshly grated nutmeg
  • Sweet paprika
  • Day-old French bread or country loaf, cut into 1 inch cubes or apple slices for serving
  • Cornichon pickles for serving
  • Pickled onions for serving
Rub the inside of the pot with the garlic. Over medium heat, warm the wine with the lemon juice. In a small bowl, use a fork to whisk the cornstarch and kirsch until smooth. Gradually add both cheeses to the pot, stirring continuously in a figure-eight motion. 
When the mixture begins to bubble, stir in the kirsch-cornstarch paste.
Continue to cook for another 3 to 5 minutes, and season with a little white pepper, nutmeg and a pinch of paprika.
Should your melted cheese begin to separate, increase the heat and whisk or stir the mixture quickly to bring it together again. 
Transfer to a fondue pot if using. Serve with bread cubes or sliced apples, cornichon pickles, and pickled onions.
