Swiss Cheese Fondue

Of all the types of fondues out there Swiss fondue is the way to go. Swiss cheese is rich and creamy and melts really well. Udder Delights is a local business who makes delicious home made cheeses perfect for fondues.

Preparation Tips

  • Don’t let the fondue boil over
  • Cut the dippers into bite size pieces
  • Use the right liquids: beers, wine and cream (not water)
  • Throw away bamboo skewers are a good idea in case guests want a fresh utensil to use
  • Serve the meat on a separate plate to the rest of the dippers
