    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      The optimal choice of pots is a steel or cast iron medium sized pot (2 quart) with an enameled interior.
    2. 2
      In a medium sized bowl, combine the three cheeses and toss with the flour.
    3. 3
      Rub the inside of the fondue pot with the garlic halves.
    4. 4
      Add the wine and heat over medium heat until hot, but not boiling.
    5. 5
      Stir in lemon juice and kirsch.
    6. 6
      Add a handful of cheese at a time to the wine mixture, stirring constantly and not adding more cheese until the previous has melted, bubbling gently and has the appearance of a light creamy sauce season with pepper and nutmeg.
    7. 7
      Remove the pot from the heat and place over an alcohol safety burner on the table.
    8. 8
      Adjust the burner flame so the fondue continues to bubble gently.
    9. 9
      Serve with plenty of crusty bread cubes.

      Wonnderful recipe, I've made this exact one for years, found it in an old Forum Feasts cookbook from the 60's, which I've lost, so thanks for posting it!! DON'T omit the Kirsch, it's there for the flavor. Enjoy!!!

      This is a very good recipe direct from iGourmet.com - and you can also get all the necessary cheeses there too, it's where we need to because the small place that we live doesn't carry all of these! I've never added the Kirsch, and this is very tasty.

      I made this but I couldn't find the appropriate cheeses and used emmenthaler, regato and a light smoked cheese. The fondue worked and was smooth and stringy when the bread cubes were dipped into it but I felt it lacked flavour. I also omitted the kirsch which may have had a negative effect.
