It is all down to the perfect combination

It doesn’t matter which cheese from Switzerland you opt for, it needs to not be too fresh, as mature cheese melts better. You can, of course add other types of cheese to the basic cheese mixture. Examples include Appenzeller®, Tilsiter, Tête de Moine AOP or even a Swiss Alpkäse or alpine cheese. Our fondue recipes provide plenty of inspiration. But here is our tried-and-tested basic fondue recipe for newbies and beginners – success guaranteed!

Add an extra handful of grated cheese. If it is still too runny, turn up the heat on the flame and add a little cornflour dissolved in wine or Kirsch.

Turn up the flame and add a little white wine to the fondue, stirring vigorously.

In this case, you need to put the fondue pot back on the cooker. Add a teaspoon of cornflour dissolved in white wine and fresh lemon juice, stir vigorously and bring back to the boil.

Simply leave out the alcohol and replace it with alcohol-free apple juice.
