  • Reviews

  • “Very,very authentic and delicious. We add a bit of nutmeg.”

  • “Thanks for a wonderful recipe. We made this for the first time on New Years Eve 2009/2010 and every one raved about it. Easy to make and beats the hell out of packet Fondue mix. Thanks again.”

  • “This was really good and tasted pretty authentic.I was looking for a recipe that used only these two cheeses. The only difference: since we love garlic so much, I used two garlic cloves and pressed them into the cheese mixture. I’ll keep this recipe!”

  • “This is just like the fondue restaurant.I used Chambord instead of Kirsch because I did not have the Kirsch handy.Yummy!”

  • “Totally hit the spot tonight!We made yet another loaf of Recipe #196201, omitted the kirsch in the fondue and it was really good. Thanks for posting!”

  • “This is fabulous! We will make this again and again. I wouldn’t change a thing.”
