Delicious and rich dish that is good for a party. Serve with french bread, crisp crackers, veggies or anything you like. Enjoy!
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 1⁄4 cup dry white wine
- 9 ounces brie cheese, rind removed and cubed
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons green onions, chopped
- 1 pinch nutmeg, freshly grated
- salt and white pepper
- Rub garlic all over the inside of your fondue pot. Then rub it in a saucepan, leaving the crushed pieces in the bottom. Add the white wine to the saucepan and heat over medium-low heat.
- Toss the cheese cubes in cornstarch to coat. When the wine is hot, add the cheese. Stir slowly with a wooden spoon at first and then use a whisk. Stir constantly to keep it from scorching on the bottom of the pot.
- When the cheese has melted, add green onion and remove pot from the heat. Grate in a little nutmeg. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- The fondue should be smooth and coat a wooden spoon. If it seems to runny, add more cheese. If it is too thick, add a splash more wine --sparingly.
- Pour the cheese into your fondue pot and keep fondue warm over low heat.
Thick, rich and wonderful! I used a medium brie, so mine was very thick, which is fine with me. I must say that out of all the dippers I tried, my favorite for this fondue was apple chunks. You must try apple chunks with this! Thanx for posting.
Please read all of the review. This was made with apple juice, not wine. I thought this would be harder than it turned out to be. Thanks, <br/>So for valentines day coming up, I wanted to make my mother a nice fondue. She has been a widow for coming up to 3 years and I always try to make certain holidays special including Valentines day, Mothers day, Fathers day, etc. Her favorite cheese is Brie and I knew I wanted it to be a main ingredient. With my favorite fondue place booked for the 14th and 15th, I wanted to duplicate my favorite fondue that is offered. It is called Brie and Gorgonzola fondue with roasted hazelnuts on top. So last night I wanted to do a trial run and my mother was working late (until about 10 pm) I got off at 5 pm which worked great, went to New seasons to get some Brie (tasted it before, super creamy, really good), as well as Gorgonzola. Now, had I known what Gorgonzola was, I most certainly would not have even tried it at the fondue restaurant, but I am glad I did. I went home followed all the steps in this recipe for a 4 person serving. Didn't have corn starch so used flour (turned out so good no one would have even known). Melted my cheeses. Used apple juice instead of wine which numerous people advised me not to do. I used 8 oz Brie and about 3 oz Gorgonzola. Oven baked bread sliced granny smith apples had dried apricots steamed broccoli and asparagus. This is going to blow my mothers mind. I hope valentines day goes as planned. Shes my rock, and I want to show her how much I appreciate her. I will update how valentines goes. This is important to me. And to anyone reading, and thinks fondue is impossible, your not alone. I thought it would not turn out. But I am proud of myself. I did alter this recipe a little because I added the Gorgonzola but this was the start I needed. Thanks @Nif
Great base recipe to start with. I omitted the cornstarch, doesn't need it, in my opinion. I increased the wine to half a cup and the garlic cloves to 4, we love garlic, and I used pre-ground nutmeg, and it was fine. The nutmeg gives this a beautiful depth. Also, black ground pepper was fine,too, for those scared off by buying something additional that isn't in your typical spice rack staple. I served this up and was told it tastes just like Melting Pot, the restaurant. Thanks for the recipe
