The sophisticate’s fondue
Add 2 tbsp (30 mL) port or medium sherry at same time you add wine. Then crumble in about 1/4 cup (50 mL) Stilton or Roquefort cheese when you add your shredded cheese of choice.
Nifty nacho appetizer
Use a 400 g bag of shredded nacho-flavoured cheese blend and add 1 tsp (5 mL) grated lime zest. When hot, taste and add Tabasco sauce or hot red chili flakes. Serve with tortilla chips or focaccia for a satisfying snack.
Cheese Fondue has traditionally been made with Gruyère cheese, but experiment and try it with a mixture of cheeses–a smart way to use up bits of leftover cheese. We loved it with a mix of Swiss and Asiago or a package of shredded 4-cheese blend.
Add hot red chili flakes and Tabasco sauce to taste when you add the cheese.
