    Mark Cross's Note:

    A few years ago, while travelling through Freiburg in Switzerland, I tasted the best cheese fondue that I had ever had or have since. Unlike most of the uninspiring fondues that I had sampled before, this was a delightful blend of subtle flavours that complimented each other perfectly. I have prepared this dish a dozen or so times now to family and friends and it has never let me down.

      This fondue was pretty good, but the wine taste was too overpowering. My husband and I both loved it except for the overpowering wine flavor. Next time, I might use Chardonnay instead of Riesling wine. Or I may try 1/2 wine and 1/2 chicken broth. I'm not giving up on the recipe. I'm just going to have to tweak it to suit our tastes a bit. I will say this: it is a very easy recipe to follow.
