  • 1/2 lb. Gruyere cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 lb. Swiss cheese, shredded
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch (use organic to avoid GMOs)
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons dry white wine such as Sauvignon Blanc


  • Place the grated cheeses in a large bowl. Toss with the cornstarch and dry mustard.
  • Pour the wine into the fondue pot. Turn the temperature to setting 5 (medium-high) and bring the wine to a strong simmer (bubbling, but not boiling strongly).
  • Stirring constantly with a wooden skewer in zigzag (not circular) motions, add the cheeses, a handful at a time, waiting for each handful to melt completely before adding another.
  • Reduce the temperature to 3 (medium-low) and serve with your choice of dippers.
