"WOW,Very Good Mimi, We enjoyed the Fondue. Different than what we had, had before. I will be using this Recipe again,My DH loves fondue."
"I SECOND THAT WOW! This was sooooo good! I'd never made fondue before, and this was very easy. We are lucky where we live, as the store has a great variety of cheeses, so getting the exact ingredients was no problem. Thanks Mimi! Abbey"
"Loved this recipe just as it was - also tried it without the shallot and added a bit of cayenne. Best cheese fondue I've had."
"First time making fondue. This was delicious. Thank you- now I want to make all different sorts of fondue. Loved it and will definitely make again."
"Too much for even two servings. We served pears (red and green), fried bacon (leftovers), salami, carrot, peapods and cubed and toasted baguette and pumpernickel breads. It turned out fine, but just got burnt out on the flavor too quickly."
"I used roasted garlic, and 1 cup parmesan and 1 cup cheddar/mozz mixed instead of the gruyere. The champagne made it taste pretty strong until it got a chance to mellow out as the alcohol cooked off. Yummy! Everyone loved it."
"This was really interesting, although I found the flavor a bit strong and overpowering, my hubby liked it very well. Perhaps next time I will cut back on the gruyere? I really liked the subtle champagne background. I will try this again, perhaps it was just my error . Thank you."
"This was very good, although we had to add a bit more of both Gruyere and Emmental - we like it a little thicker. Also, we used a Spanish cava instead of chamapagne and rubbed the fondue dish with a cut garlic clove first."
"What a great recipe! Have made many fondues before and they all taste very winey. This was much better than the traditional recipe. It was a hit at my fondue party. Thanks!!!!"
"This was the best Fondue my husband and I have ever had! We left out the nutmeg and used a California brie and it was so great! Thank You for posting it!!!"
"With recipe's like this, I'll never be thin. It was a perfect balance of flavors. This recipe will be repeated often. THANKS..."
"Absolutely divine! Very rich, but "nous habitons seulement une fois" (we only live once!)."
"Really creamy and tasty. DH said he would this again, but he'd like meat and veggies for dipping instead of just bread. I had some leftover garlic bread sticks that we dipped in addition to the baguette and it was actually much better than French bread. I think cubes of bagels would also be good dipped in this. Thanks for sharing."
"This was outstanding! It was my first fondue, and I served it to a group of women I play cards with as an appetizer. I offered french bread, sourdough, and pumpernickle breads for dippers along with pear slices and a hybrid fruit of apple/pear. It was very well received. I also just used the pre-mixed cheese from whole foods, and purchased the brie seperately. Next time, I might actually try leaving the brie out of the mix, as (perhaps because I was using the preshredded cheese mix?) made the fondue a bit thick. Of course I served the champagne alongside the fondue, which was a wonderful compliment."
"This was an excellent fondue. I must say that I thought that the gruyere and emmenthaler overpowered the brie. While I loved the flavor, it tasted very similar to the class gruyere and emmenthaler fondue. I'm not sure that I will make this again - mostly because brie is so good by itself, but I do recommend trying it. Thanks Mimi for posting!"
"Fantastic! Finally made a successful fondue that tasted great. I didn't have champagne on hand, so I used Prosecco and it worked out fine. I intended on doubling the recipe, but didn't have the correct proportions. Still turned out fine."
"This rocked! One hint to nubies though, add the cheese SLOWLY as you MAY end up with a big glop of yummy pot toasted cheese, wich was incidently, still fun to put on crutons on a candle-lit night!"
"Great tasting and very easy recipe. I used this for our annual girl's fondue night. For the gruyere and emmanthaler cheese, I just bought the prepared shredded fondue cheese from Whole Foods. Thanks for the recipe. "
"A delicious, sophisticated tasting fondue! This was my first time trying out my fondue pot and I had some difficulty getting the brie to melt; however, the fondue tasted great and the yield of fondue, served with bread cubes, lightly steamed broccoli, and the remaining champagne, was perfect for two people."
"I made this for a cocktail buffet this past weekend. I just placed the fondu pot on the buffet table with long wood skewers for people to dip pumpernickle or Italian white bread, apple slices or pear slices. Its worked very well, and was so yummy. I loved the flavor of this and it was really so easy to make. We had some champagne that a neighbor dropped off for us on our wedding day but since neither my husband nor I like champagne I wasn't sure what to do with it. This was the perfect excuse to open it and whatever was left after making this went in people's glasses. I grated all the cheese ahead of time so all I had to do was toss it all together and asign a friend to stirring while I cooked other things. I am sure I will make this again and again. Thanks for a great recipe."
