    Nyteglori's Note:

    Most classic fondue recipes use Swiss or Swiss and Gruyere cheese. Not all cheese made good fondues and will separate into two layers of cheese and wine, or are too runny to be used. These various cheese have been tested and work well in the classic fondue recipe Brick makes a fondue that is moderately sharp about midway between cheddar and Limburger. Fontina has a delicate nutty flavor and muenster is mild.

      Note: When choosing your wine you may choose a color or flavor other than what is listed here. Sherry is good for appetizer fondue; Champagne, Nechatel or Fendant de Sion are good for either appetizers or the main course; and Rhine, Moselle, Chablis, Sauterne are best for main dishes.
