CheeseF HB

For the month of October the Cooking Light Virtual Supper club decided to cook with wine. For me this would be a bit of a challenge because I don’t really drink wine much less know what to buy for cooking with it! I checked with my friend Cathy of the Noble Pig to see what she would suggest would be a good white wine for cheese fondue. Cathy came back with a few suggestions and I was able to find the Kendall Jackson Chardonnay without much effort and the fondue turned out delicious! It was great with apples but I also enjoyed it with some crusty french bread!

Cheese Fondue with Apples – Shelby from The Life and Loves of Grumpy’s Honeybunch


Cheese Fondue with Apples

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded Emmenthaler or Swiss cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 garlic clove, halved
  • 3/4 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1 teaspoon kirsch (cherry brandy)
  • 3 apples, each cored and cut into 9 wedges (I used Granny Smith)
  • Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, cheese, and nutmeg, tossing well.
  • Rub cut sides of garlic on inside of a medium, heavy saucepan. Add broth and wine to pan; bring to a simmer over medium heat.
  • Add one-third cheese mixture to pan, stirring with a whisk until combined. Repeat procedure with remaining cheese mixture. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook 5 minutes or until smooth, stirring frequently.
  • Remove cheese mixture from heat; stir in kirsch. Pour mixture into a fondue pot. Keep warm over low flame. Serve with apple wedges.

    Cheese fondue is a wonderful way to get people to come together. They have to, to reach the pot, plus they get to play with their food, so it makes a fun atmosphere for dinner.

    Looks good HoneyB! While I don't drink I do have a bottle of white wine in the fridge that I use for recipes that call for some. Needless to say it's been in ther quite some time.

    MMMmmmmm… One of the best things about seasons with colder weather is the chance to share warm things around a table with friends. This looks like just the dish for such occasions. Very nice supper club choice!!

    I made cheese fondue for NYE a few years ago… so yummy. I rarely just DRINK wine, but I love to cook with it. I buy the little bottles that come in a 4-pack (a bunch of different kinds are starting to be available all the sudden in my store). Nothing beats a red-wine mushroom gravy with beef. YUMMY!
