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!

I actually used shredded mozzarella cheese and skipped the kirsch. I'm sure it would have been even better with swiss cheese.
