Cuisine: French
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes


  • 2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
  • 2 cups shredded Gruyere

  • 3 tablespoons sherry, brandy or white wine
  • 1 loaf French bread, cut into cubes

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Combine the cheese and flour in a bowl. Stir to combine.
  2. If using, cut the garlic clove in half and rub it all over the inside of a fondue pot. Discard. 
  3. Add the wine and heat to a simmer. Do not boil.
  4. Add lemon juice and about one-fourth of the cheese. Stir until cheese melts, then add another one-fourth. Do this until all the cheese is used and melted. Stir in the sherry, brandy or additional white wine. Serve with chunks of French bread.

Maybe a strange question, but vermouth won't work?
Donna John
I don't see why not if you like the taste of vermouth. It doesn't cook out, so it may give it a stronger taste. Let us know how it turns out! Scott Butcher
