Fromagination's Wisconsin Fondue

Proudly Wisconsin Cheese

Fromagination, a specialty cheese shop in Madison, Wisconsin, honors the state's Swiss heritage and alpine-style cheeses with this fondue.

Yield: 6 servings

Preparation Time: 25 minutes active time



Combine the swiss, Grand Cru, Little Mountain, 1 cup wine and lemon juice in a medium bowl. Let stand at room temperature for least 2 hours, or cover and refrigerate overnight.

Add salt to a large saucepan. Starting in the salt, rub the cut sides of garlic on pan. Discard garlic. Add the remaining wine; bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low. Gradually whisk in cheese mixture until mixture is smooth. Season with nutmeg and pepper to taste.

Transfer cheese sauce to a fondue pot. Heat on low to keep warm. Serve with dippers.

Recipe Tip:
Soaking the cheese, preferably overnight, in wine prior to melting not only adds flavor, but it helps to ensure a smooth fondue. Fromagination suggests using a Sauvignon Blanc wine in this recipe.

Cheesemonger Tip:
All three of these award-winning cheeses reflect the tradition and flavors of alpine mountain cheeses. They're all made near New Glarus, Wisconsin, which was settled in 1845 by the Swiss from the Canton of Glarus in Switzerland.

Please note that some ingredients and brands may not be available in every store.
