The Best Swiss Cheese and Beer Fondue
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.
