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.
Yummy Jen! Looks fantastic…. is it safe to say you judge a book by its cover..or just a wine by its lable?? ; ) I am the same way!
mmmmm – i LOVE brie! i think i will have to try this for sure!!!!! looks delish!!!
glad you guys had such a great thanksgiving with your families!
That looks amazing! Can you post or email me your recipe for Nutella fondue? My husband and I are setting up our christmas tree tonight and we always do fondue and that sounds YUMMY! (side note) I love reading your blog! It’s so inspiring!
Ha ha! I bought wine once because the bottle was amazing! The wine was shit, but the bottle…oh the bottle!
wow i think i am going to make this soon! great pictures, too!
hey what kind of wine is that? is it from walla walla by any chance?
i went to college there and drank my fill of house wine by K vintners and this label looks kind of similar.
oops–i meant is it by “the magnificent wine company”?
man, that stuff is goooooood.
ooo that looks so yummy! I might have to do that for dinner tonight.
I do the same thing with wine, I especially like wines with funny names.
I am a sucker for a good wine label too. Although I am also a sucker for cheap wine, as long as it’s pretty decent.
hahahha! I DEFINITELY buy wine, even if it doesn’t have a cool label, but I will have to admit, I tend to only half know what I’m doing when it comes to wine, so in general I just tend to find whatever has the coolest label that’s also in my price range. I figure, I’m still learning, so it can’t be that bad of a system!
Yum! That sounds sooo good!
Boyfriend and I plan to be doing a lot of cooking over winter break, since we’ll have access to a real kitchen! I will be coming back for this recipe and many others for inspiration. Cheese & veggies, yummy.
Mmmm, I bookmarked this one too. I think your recipes have fed us at least once a week for the last month!
I just kinda make up the nutella fondue recipe as I go but I have def. found ones online before- some that use hazelnut liqueur. Mmm
but i usually just add
semi sweet chocolate chips
and lots of nutella.
MMmmmm i am a sucker for nutella!
YUM! I have got to try this!
I’m sooo going to make this! Thanks for the recipe!
