    1. 1
      Grate the cheese.

      In the top pan of the double boiler bring the 2 cups water, wine, butter, and seasonings to a boil, then add the cheese and set pan on the top of the double boiler over the boiling water.

      Stir thoroughly with a wooden spoon until the cheese melts into a smooth, heavy sauce (if the fondue seems too thick, add additional wine; if it is too thin add additional grated cheese).

      This is a wonderful fondue but the recipe is different than the one I got from the kitchen of the Rhinelander almost forty years ago and it explains why it is runny. My recipe from this restaurant is the same EXCEPT it called for 1 cup of liquid for the 5 cups of the cheese. That's a big difference. Use 1/2 cup Sauterne and 1/2 cup water. From that point add extra cheese or wine/water if needed to gain proper consistancy. 5 stars when made this way. Yum!! I just doubled it and made it for a large party last night.

      Fabulous! My mom used to make this for us on Christmas Eve. It's just like I remembered. For those having trouble with the recipe-- did you use swiss american?? You can find it at Costco. I don't think regular swiss cheese will work-- you need the processed stuff to get the creamy texture.

      Way too runny! It had a hard time sticking to anything. The taste was good but overall a disappointment.
