Authentic French 'Fondue Savoyarde' Recipe

Tuesday, January 14, 2014C Riches

Following on from yesterday's Fondue Party post, here's my go-to French Savoyard Cheese Fondue recipe. 
Warning: Delicious and very addictive!! ;)

French ‘Fondue Savoyarde’ Recipe


* 200 g of grated cheese per person : 1/3 Beaufort, 1/3 Comté et 1/3 Emmental.
* 300 ml of white wine per each 1 kg of cheese
* 1 peeled garlic clove
* 1 teaspoon of corn starch (optional)
* Nutmeg to taste

1) Cut the garlic clove in half and rub the all around the inside of a heat-proof casserole or fondue pot. Leave the remaining garlic piece inside the pot for a stronger flavor.
2) Add the wine and bring to a boil over a medium heat.
3) Slowly add the grated cheeses to the wine, mixing with a wooden spoon until all melted. It takes a while, but keep stirring until it is all homogeneous.
4) Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste. Serve at once.

TIP: If your fondue still has a little liquid on the side, you can thicken it by dissolving a teaspoon of cornstarch into a little water and add the thin paste formed to the fondue. Stir to bring the cheeses together and get a smoother texture.

Dip bread, vegetables, fruit and anything else you like into the fondue. But be careful not to drop a piece inside the fondue pot when dipping – According to tradition, those who do, have to carry out a forfeit! ;)
