Tips

-If you don't have any wine or just want to try something different, try using beer instead.
-If you find that your fondue is too thick, add a tablespoon of lemon juice and whisk in. The acid of the lemon will help thin the sauce and also bring out some of the flavors of the cheese.
-Try using different cheese in the fondue, just be sure to choose a cheese that will melt well. Emmental, comte and fontina will all work well with this recipe!
