If you’ve ever been to Switzerland, or have any Swiss friends, you have almost certainly tried Swiff Fondue as it is a staple of their culture.

The whole idea behind fondue is that everyone shares their food… which is a major part of Swiss values. This dish is great for sharing – a generous pot of melted cheeses are placed on the center of the table, with a candle lit underneith it to keep is warm… and then various bowls of ingredients are placed around it. It is “user’s choice” when it comes to how much to dep and when… but you can guarantee it will be fun for the whole family! Typical ingredients include potato, bread, raw and cooked vegetables and sometimes meats. It is often served with black tea or white wine.



  1. Put the grated cheese and cornstarch Into a large bowl.
  2. Mix or toss it well so that the cheese is coated with the cornstarch.
  3. Crush the garlic clove and rub a saucepan with.
  4. Over a moderately high heat, bring the wine to a simmer in a large saucepan/pot.
  5. Once simmering, reduce the heat to moderately low.
  6. Add in the cheese little at a time, stirring CONSTANTLY. (If there is fat separation in the fondue, whisk in 1-2 teaspoons cornstarch slurry)
  7. After the last of the cheese has been added, add the lemon juice.
  8. Add nutmeg and peppercorns to taste.
  9. Continue to stir constantly for 3 minutes.
  10. Very carefully, pour the fondue into your fondue pot (set over the burner) and serve immediately.
