I make something similar to this recipe. I use 3 cups Swiss and 1 cup cheddar for a better flavor to the cheese. I do not use garlic and nutmeg as I do not like the flavors of these spices, nor do I use the Kirsch. I use a sweeter white wine called Rhine and instead of tossing the cheese with the flour, I take the flour and mix it with a tablespoon of Rhine and use that to thicken my fondue. I like the added dimension of flavor that the cheddar and the Rhine adds to this fondue. This came from a recipe that came with a 70's set my mother got as a gift. Also, my Mom oven toasted her cubed bread to help it hold up to the cheese. Hope someone tries this recipe, it is very, very good. My daughter who does not use alcohol uses the chicken broth and loves it.
This is the classic recipe for Swiss fondue. If there are those of you who have problems with the flavors, here is my advice:
1) a TINY dash fo nutmeg goes a LONG way
2) if you don't like garlic, leave it out
3) use a white wine that you would like to drink - some dry white wines are SO "oak-y", that they can really add a bitter flavor. We have aven used a sweeter (but not super sweet) white wine and it was good. If you don't know wines very well and don't want to spend much money a Chablis would be a better choice than a Chardonnay -- which can impart a strong flavor.
4) make sure that you use a Swiss (and this can include Emmanthaler and other Swiss "nationality" cheeses) cheese that tastes good to you
Hope this helps!
We made this recipe following the directions exactly. The fondue had a VERY strong flavor and wasn't edible. The only way I would remake this recipe is with chicken broth instead of the wine.
