  • add   1 garlic clove, halved crosswise <br> 1 1/2 cups dry white wine<br> 1 tablespoon cornstarch<br> 2 teaspoons kirsch (optional)<br> 1/2 lb Emmental cheese, coarsely grated (2 cups)<br> 1/2 lb Gruy&#232;re, coarsely grated (2 cups)

Instructions

  1. Rub inside of a 4-quart heavy pot with cut sides of garlic, then discard garlic. Add wine to pot and bring just to a simmer over moderate heat.
  2. Stir together cornstarch and kirsch (if using; otherwise, use water or wine) in a cup.
  3. Gradually add cheese to pot and cook, stirring constantly in a zigzag pattern (not a circular motion) to prevent cheese from balling up, until cheese is just melted and creamy (do not let boil). Stir cornstarch mixture again and stir into fondue. Bring fondue to a simmer and cook, stirring, until thickened, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer to fondue pot set over a flame.
