How to make it
- Place the shredded cheese and cornstarch in a plastic freezer bag. Seal, shake to coat the cheese with cornstarch.
- Set aside.
- Rub the inside of a 4-quart pot with the garlic, then discard.
- Over medium heat, add the wine and lemon juice and bring to a gentle simmer.
- Gradually stir the cheese into the wine.
- Stir constantly in a zig-zag pattern to prevent the cheese from seizing and balling up.
- Cook until the cheese is just melted and creamy.
- Do not let boil.
- Once smooth, stir in kirsch, mustard and nutmeg.
- Transfer the cheese to a fondue serving pot, set over a flame to keep warm. I
- If your pot is thin-bottomed, a lit candle will probably do. If thick-bottomed, you can use a small Sterno.
- Arrange an assortment of bite-sized dipping foods on a lazy Susan around fondue pot.
- Spear dipping foods with fondue forks or wooden skewers. Dip to coat with the cheese, and eat.
