  • add   2 cups grated emmenthaler cheese
  • add   1 teaspoon cornflour
  • add   2 cups grated gruyere cheese
  • add   1 clove garlic
  • add   cubed French bread
  • add   1 teaspoon lemon juice

  1. Rub the inside of the fondue pot with cut clove of garlic.
  2. Pour in wine and lemon juice and heat gently until bubbling.
