Rachel Allen’s Quick Swiss Cheese Fondue

Serves 4.  Vegetarian

Children and adults alike love cheese fondue because it’s a bit of a novelty. Definitely something to enjoy as a family – especially when a piece of bread disappears into the cheese sauce and everyone hunts around for it with their skewer!

  • 75ml (3fl oz) dry white wine
  • 2 large cloves of garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley (optional)
  • 300g (11oz) Gruyre cheese, grated
  • 400g (14oz) Emmental cheese, grated
  • 200g (7oz) crusty white bread, cut into 2cm (1in) chunks

Cooking Instructions

  1. Place the wine, garlic and parsley (if using) in a fondue pot or small saucepan, stir together and then add the grated cheeses. The fondue can be prepared ahead up to this point.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200C (400F), Gas mark 6.
  3. Tip the chunks of bread onto a non-stick baking tray and bake in the oven for 8–10 minutes, tossing halfway through, until they are crisp and golden.
  4. Place the fondue pot or saucepan on the hob at a low heat and cook until the cheese melts and begins to bubble, stirring occasionally. Serve the fondue immediately with the toasted bread. To eat, place a piece of bread on a fork or fondue skewer, dip in the fondue and enjoy!
