Mmmmmmm! So lets just say one of my favorite things is Fondue. I tend to lean towards fondue more for dessert (nutella fondue) but tonight I really wanted to have a fun and relaxing night with some christmas music, some wine and something fun for dinner. So I decided on a cheese fondue. I really wanted to use brie so I found a recipe and went with it! It was super easy. Cutting the apples, bread, then veggies and steaming them and cooking the potatoes took the most time. All of it was delicious dipped in brie! But out favorites were the apples, cauliflower and potatoes.
I love these pictures kev took!! Isnt the wine label cool? I can’t bring myself to buy a label that I dont think is cool. I know I know thats a bad way to buy wine. What can I say I am an art teacher.
2 cloves garlic, crushed
3/4 cup dry white wine
1/8 cup sherry
1 pound Brie cheese, rind removed and cubed
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 pinch of nutmeg
salt and white pepper to taste
Stuff: Apple slices, Pear slices, Bread cubes, Roasted Potatoes, Radishes, Carrots, cauliflower and Brussel Sprouts.
1. Add garlic to fondue pot, then add wine and sherry. Cook on medium-low heat.
2.Toss the cheese cubes in cornstarch to coat. When the wine is hot, add the cheese. Stir slowly. Stir constantly to keep it from scorching on the bottom of the pot. When the cheese has melted, remove it from the heat and in a little nutmeg. Season with salt and pepper to taste. The fondue should be smooth. If it seems to runny, add more cheese. If it is too thick, add a splash more wine -but be careful not to add to much. It gets liquidy real fast.
