Last Nights Dinner (Valentine’s Ed.)

This is a recipe I have actually posted before. But, since I was just talking about fondue. I thought I would re-post it. If you can’t make it out of the house for a Valentine’s Day dinner, it doesn’t mean your meal at home can’t be special. I think fondue is a great way to have a romantic dinner at home. This Brie Fondue is Mmmm delicious!!!
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.

Dip Away!

    this might be a really stupid question, but do you steam the veggies and toast the bread cubes?
