Fontina, Swiss and Pancetta Fondue

Proudly Wisconsin Cheese

Fondue is meant to be shared with loved ones. Fontina and swiss cheeses mingle with wine; and when melted, they create a lovely, gooey sauce. Serving it with unique dippers is fun, too!

Yield: 10-12 servings



Combine 1 cup wine and garlic in a large saucepan. Bring to a gentle boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low; simmer. Remove garlic.

Gradually whisk in fontina and swiss, a 1/4 cup at a time, until melted. (Do not boil.) Combine cornstarch and remaining wine in a small bowl until smooth; whisk into cheese mixture. Cook and whisk until mixture is smooth and thick. Add pancetta; whisk to combine.

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

Cheesemonger Tip:
The tradition of making swiss cheese in 200-pound wheels began in the Middle Ages when the Swiss government taxed cheesemakers on the number of pieces they produced rather than total weight.

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