How to make a cheese fondue

I decided to share how to make a cheese fondue because many people asked me and I thought that a step by step tutorial would be fun.

During our Holidays in Switzerland, Jonas proposed himself to cook a fondue for 9 persons. It is not an easy talk for so many people. I decided to follow with pictures 🙂 First you will need two caquelons (that’s the plate you cook the fondue in).


For 9 persons, you need 1800gr (we count 200 gr per person) of cheese  (half Vacherin, half Gruyere), 4 garlic gloves, 4 small spoons of Maizena, 4 small spoon of whisky, 8 dl of white wine

First rub the garlic against the caquelon. Then cut the garlic in very small pieces that you will add to the cheese.Couper l
Put the white wine in the caquelon and warm it. While the wine is warming up, mix the whisky and the Maizena in a small plate and keep it.
When the wine starts to boil, add the cheese.Melanger la maizenaHow to cook a fondueMelanger la maizenaYou will need to mix the cheese all the time. You can’t stop.
