Yesterday, we brought you the scoop on an Urban Fondue Party from Hospitality Expert Emillio Mesa! Today, we’ve got the yummy recipes to go with it. Enjoy the eye candy, then get cookin’.
1 Garlic cove, cut in half
1 Cup dry white wine
1/2 lb. shredded Gruyere cheese
1/2 lb. shredded Emmentaler cheese
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
Shred/grate both cheeses (can mix together!).
Rub the garlic inside the fondue pot, then discard.
Pour the white wine and lemon juice into the pot and turn on the burner.
Let the wine and lemon juice warm up without boiling.
Reduce heat and add the shredded cheese.
With a wooden spoon, mix well and stir regularly.
Add pepper to taste.
*Have a little more wine and cheese on hand to adjust the consistency if needed. Add more cheese if it’s too liquid, add more wine if it’s too thick.
What to Dip:
Cubes of your favorite bread/s (leave a piece of crust on each cube).
Cooked chicken, beef, turkey or seafood (bite-sized cubes with skin and bone removed).
Potatoes (roasted or boiled, baby potatoes work best).
Broccoli and/or cauliflower florets (boil for two minutes before using as dippers).
