I'm not crazy about the taste of white wine, so this recipe offers an alternative.

Perfect not-too-stretchy-cheese fondue. I halved it for my fondue-loving 13 year-old, using fontina, and served it with lightly olive oil drizzled, slightly oven-toasted bread chunks. Great way to get calcium into Mr. Picky. Thanks!
