Directions

  1. Toss the grated cheese with the flour in a bowl. Set aside.
  2. Rub a 2 quart pan with garlic.
  3. Over medium to medium-high heat, melt the butter, add chives and saute for 1 minute.
  4. Add wine [I have gotten the best results with Fish Eye pinot grigio] and bring just to boiling point - but DO NOT BOIL.
  5. Keeping this just below simmering, add the grated cheese slowly by small handfuls.
  6. Stir in 1 direction continuously as each handful melts into the liquid.
  7. If the mixture should look like it's starting to boil, simply take the pot off the heat for a minute or so.
  8. After all the cheese is melted, remove pot from heat.
  9. Add salt and pepper and just 3 strokes or so (a dash) of freshly grated nutmeg.
  10. Add kirsch and serve immediately with cubed bread.
  11. Tips: the chives can be omitted; swiss cheese can be substituted but it is MUCH less tasty - use the best quality cheese that you can find; you can also use any bread that's handy.
