$config[ads_text] not found
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 300 g each of Vacherin, Emmentaler and Gruyère
  • 450 ml of dry white wine
  • 4 tsp cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons of kirsch
  • pepper
  • grated nutmeg


  • Caquelon (cheese fondue pot)
  • fondue forks
  • Alcohol for the rechaud

Boil 1 potato in salted water for 15-20 minutes. Cut the bread into cubes of approx. 3 cm. Clean mushrooms, quarter figs. Arrange on plates together with physalis, grapes and Bündnerfleisch.

2 For the cheese, peel garlic, halve, rub fondue pot with it. Grate cheese roughly. Bring the wine to a boil. Stir the starch and kirsch until smooth, stir in and bring to a boil.

3 Gradually stir in a handful of cheese over medium heat, dissolving with a wooden spoon, stirring constantly. Boil, season with pepper and nutmeg. Fill the cheese mass into the caquelon and keep warm on the rechaud.


To stir patiently: Swing the wooden spoon vigorously while melting the cheese. And: Even if it looks as if something settles, bravely continue to stir!

A pinch of baking powder: As soon as all the cheese has dissolved and the fondue is nicely smooth: stir in a pinch of baking powder, which hisses and bubbles briefly, but makes it nice and fluffy.

Tea as a companion: Traditionally, there is black tea. Why? Because the cheese is not so heavy in the stomach.
