The Best Swiss Cheese and Beer Fondue
Want to make friends? Serve fondue and enjoy the festive camaraderie that develops from dipping into and sharing a pot of warm, melted cheese. Traditionally made with white wine, this recipe uses beer for a robust-flavored taste. Celery and carrot slices and cauliflower florets are also delicious dipped into the creamy cheese mixture.
Recipe Summary test
Swiss fondue is traditionally made with Emmental, a nutty, buttery-tasting cow's milk cheese that is Switzerland's oldest and most important cheese. If a Swiss Emmental variety is not available, an American version is perfectly acceptable. Be sure to trim off the rind before grating the cheese.
A ceramic fondue dish is best for this dish. Look for one with a small heater underneath to keep the cheese mixture warm.
You may also preheat the fondue dish by filling it with hot water. Drain and dry the dish before pouring in the cheese mixture.
