1 garlic clove
2/3 cup dry white wine

10 oz Emmentaler cheese, grated
10 oz Gruyere cheese, grated
1 tbsp. cornstarch
3 tbsp. kirsch
pinch white pepper
pinch of ground nutmeg

Rub the inside of a fondue pot with the cut clove of
garlic, then discard the garlic. Pour in the wine
with the lemon juice and heat gently on the stove.
Gradually add the cheese, stirring in a figure eight
motion, until all the cheese is combined.

Blend the cornstarch and Kirsch together and as soon as the cheese mixture begins to bubble, add to the fondue. Continue to cook gently for a further 2-3 minutes and season, according to taste with the
pepper, nutmeg, and paprika.

Transfer the fondue pot to the table and keep warm.
Serve with cubes of french bread.
