Cheese fondue

A couple of months ago we got a fondue set. An electric one. It's not so atmospheric as those with the little candle under the pot, but the good thing about it is that it is easy to regulate the temperature. This way whatever is melting in the pot is not burned.

Anyway, I was planning to use it once my sister would come to visit, but finally when she came we totally forgot about it. But today I took a big decision! It was very nice! So here comes the recipe:


300 gr, Emmental-type cheese, preferably not very salty, shredded

1 cup white wine

1/2 tsp sweet paprika

1 tbsp lemon juice

1/2 tsp dry mustard
some ground nutmeg

1. In the fondue pot mix the wine, paprika, lemon juice, mustard and nutmeg and bring to the boil.

2. Reduce the heat and start slowly stirring the cheese into the wine mixture.

3. With a wooden spatula constantly keep stirring the cheese until it melts.

4. Transfer the fondue pot to the base and set the heat on low. It should not be boiling, but rather stay liquid and creamy.

Serve it with various pieces of veg, ham, shrimp, crackers, bread etc. Have fun!
