Rub the inside of a large fondue pot or a large enamel pot with garlic cloves until fragrant, then discard. Combine cheeses, wine, and lemon juice in pot, and heat until just melted. Stir in Kirsch, pepper, and nutmeg, and continue stirring until creamy but not stringy. Serve immediately.
Not sure what to use for dipping? In addition to bread, great dippers include cherry tomatoes, red radishes, baby carrots, cooked potato, cooked zucchini, broccoli florets, sliced apples, and even grapes. If you like meats, try chunks of cooked sausages, chicken, pork, or steak, just make sure everyone sharing likes meat. Even pickles are great for dipping in fondue!
