Gruyère and Mushroom Fondue

Ingredients

  • 1 oz (30 g) dried morel mushrooms, rinsed and drained
  • 1 ¼ cups (310 ml) Riesling, Chasselas or other dry white wine
  • 8 cups (750 g) grated Gruyère cheese
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 clove garlic, halved
  • 1 loaf country bread or baguette, cubed

Preparation

  1. In a bowl, rehydrate the morels in the wine for 30 minutes. Drain and reserve the wine. Thinly slice the morels. Set aside.
  2. In another bowl, combine the cheese and cornstarch. Set aside.
  3. Off the heat, rub the inside of a fondue pot with the garlic, leaving it in the pot, if desired. Add the cheese mixture and wine.
  4. On the stovetop over medium heat, melt the cheese mixture, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon or whisk until smooth. Stir in the mushrooms (see note).
  5. Place over the fondue pot burner. Serve immediately with the bread cubes.

Note

If desired, add 1 tbsp (15 ml) of kirsch, along with the mushrooms, once the cheese has melted. Continue cooking for 1 minute.
