Fondue from Savoie

    50 min

    For an unforgettable fondue, try this recipe from Savoie, France. Use a mixture of cheese for best results, like 1/3 Comte, 1/3 Beaufort and 1/3 Gruyere. Also, a white wine from Savoie is preferable. Always stir the cheese with a whisk. Slowly draw a figure of eight as you stir the cheese! This is very important!
