- Fondue pot or a nice, heavy, heat-safe ceramic serving dish
FOR THE FONDUE
- 1/4 lb grated Gruyère cheese
- 1/4 lb grated Gouda cheese
- 1/4 tsp xanthan gum
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 cup dry white wine
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
- pinch of nutmeg
FOR THE DIPPERS
- 16 about 1/2 pint cherry tomatoes
- 1 cup broccoli florets, blanched
- 4 slices bacon, cooked crispy and cut in half widthwise
- 1/4 lb salami cut into 1/2-inch thick half-moons
- 8 whole radishes
- Prepare your fondue pot and place over low heat, or if you’re using a dish, warm in a low oven or place it in a bowl and cover with boiling water, set aside.
- In a medium bowl, combine both cheeses, the xanthan gum, and the garlic powder. Toss well to coat. Set aside.
- In a medium, heavy-bottomed pot, over medium heat, bring the wine, broth, and lemon juice to a simmer. Immediately reduce the heat to low, then whisk in the cheese mixture, small handfuls at a time, until it’s smooth and creamy. Whisk in the nutmeg, then transfer to a warmed serving dish or fondue pot.
- Arrange the “Dippers” items on a platter or serving board. Serve with the fondue and skewers.
Where can I purchase the fondue set-up shown in the photo?
We purchased ours from Amazon. The size we have is 600 ML, however, I’m not seeing it available right now on their site. Check out this link for options: https://www.amazon.com/s?k=BOSKA+Tapas+Fondue+Bianco+L%2C+600ML%2C+white&ref=nb_sb_noss_1
We loved the flavor, however, the fondue was very thin and would not thicken up. We ended up adding more cheese and a bit of flour. It still wouldn’t thicken.
It’s important to sprinkle cheese in small amounts, slowly while whisking. Otherwise it will not incorporate with the liquid properly.
