This is a wonderful cheese fondue with lots of flavor and very family friendly. If serving with potatoes, Ellinikos Lemoni Patatas (Greek Lemon Potatoes) is an excellent choice to offer with this fondue.

Loved this! Made for Valentine's Day family fondue night. Used Tillamook sharp cheddar which was fantastic. Be sure to hand grate the cheese, don't use pre-shredded. Served with bread cubes, multigrain and sourdough, rye pretzels, mushrooms cut in half, and baby carrots cut in half. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
