Classic Swiss Fondue

Cheese fondue is a delicious meal any time of year and an especially fantastic treat for a dinner party. Oliver’s gourmet cheese Department is your go-to for the essentials, and Mifroma Cave d’Or Aged Gruyere Bio and Gotthelf Slowfood Emmentaler are the perfect choices for authenthic fondue. When it comes to sumptuous gourmet delights, nothing can compare to fondue!

  • Serves: 6 servings
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes


  • 1 pound Mifroma Cave d'Or Aged Gruyere Bio, grated
  • ½ pound Gotthelf Slowfood Emmentaler, grated
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 ½ tablespoons kirsch
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • freshly grated nutmeg
  • Assorted breads, fruit or vegetables, prepared for dipping


  1. In a cheese fondue pot or medium enameled cast-iron casserole combine the grated Gruyère and Emmentaler with the wine, cornstarch and lemon and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until the cheeses begin to melt, about 5 minutes.

  2. Add the kirsch and a generous pinch each of pepper and nutmeg and cook, stirring gently, until creamy and smooth, about 10 minutes; don't overcook the fondue or it will get stringy.

  3. Serve at once with accompaniments of choice.
