Excellent recipe! I have never been successful at keeping the cheese from clumping- until now! It was an adventure to find Kirsch, even in a big city like Chicago but the results were wonderful. I cooked everything on the stovetop. Next time, I'll let it simmer for longer before serving, as when I served it the wine was overwhelming and the cheese thin. After simmering some time in the fondue pot, the balance in taste and consistency were perfect!

  3. Discard garlic clove.
  4. Add wine, Kirsh and lemon juice.
  5. Microwave 6-7 mins, just until bubbles start to appear; DO NOT BOIL.
  6. Stir in cheese and seasonings, microwave, uncovered 2-3 mins longer until smooth, whisking every 2 mins.
  7. Transfer to a fondue pot, or a round casserole dish.
  8. Serve with chunks of French bread to dip in cheese mixture.
