Our Winter Warm Up Fondue!
by our very own Cheesemonger Dan B.
32 oz. Reading Raclette (a semi-soft, aromatic Swiss cheese), cubed
4 oz. Chablis
6 whole cloves of garlic, cracked
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
Fresh, cracked peppercorns (preferably pink, but black works, too!)
Crusty bread, cut into large cubes for dipping
2 Granny Smith Apples, cored and sliced, for dipping
1. Set your oven to 350 degrees. Heat cubed Raclette and Chablis in the fondue pot for about 30 minutes, until completely melted.
2. While waiting for the cheese to melt, sauté the garlic in a pan with a little butter over low heat until crispy, but not burnt.
3. When the fondue is perfectly melted and bubbly, add the garlic cloves and grind the peppercorns before mixing and serving. Serve with bread and apples for dipping.
