Hello, hello dear "cheese lovers",
If you love cheese and if you are tired of only having soup for dinner when it is cold outside, I have the perfect most frenchie recipe for you !

I am SO "fond-of-fondue" (and so is my boyfriend after last night! ) I have noticed that "fondue" here usually refers to the chocolate one, where you dip different fruits in chocolate and of course, it is quite yummy!
Well, in France, we are the cheese nation so we usually talk about "cheese fondue".
The concept is simple, you love cheese, so you cook the recipe (which is very simple by the way), you get some good bread and here we go. You can get make a cheese fondue happen anytime !


4 teaspoons cornstarch, divided
1 tablespoon plus 1 cup dry white wine, divided
1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded Gruyere cheese (you can use Monterey cheese)
1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
1 garlic clove, peeled and halved
1-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
3 drops hot pepper sauce
Cubed French bread and/or sliced apples


-In a small bowl, combine 2 teaspoons cornstarch with 1 tablespoon wine; set aside. Combine cheeses and remaining cornstarch; set aside.

-Rub sides of a large saucepan with cut sides of garlic; discard garlic. Add remaining wine to the pan and heat over medium heat until bubbles form around sides of pan. Stir in lemon juice.

-Reduce heat to medium-low; add a handful of cheese mixture. Stir constantly, using a figure-eight motion, until almost completely melted. Continue adding cheese, one handful at a time, allowing cheese to almost completely melt between additions. Stir in the garlic powder, oregano, Worcestershire sauce and pepper sauce. Stir cornstarch mixture; gradually add to the pan. Cook and stir until mixture is thickened and smooth. Keep warm. Serve with bread. Yield: 2 cups.

Choose a cold night, get friends together and enjoy some fondue, you won't be disappointed!

With love,
