The Gruyere cheese was introduced for the first time in the Alps in Switzerland's western region. Its flavor, freshness, and texture have led to imitations; however, by the 19th century, it had been granted its designation of origin.


  • 1 cloves of garlic
  • 250 cc of white wine
  • 250 g of Gruyere cheese
  • 250 g of Emental
  • 1 pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon of starch
  • 30 cc kirsch (cherry liqueur), can be replaced by more white wine
  • 200 g of bread in pieces


  1. Coarsely grate the cheeses.
  2. Garlic should be rubbed into the pot or caquelón where the fondue will be prepared.
  3. Heat the wine until it reaches a boil.
  4. Reduce the heat to low and stir continuously in a figure-eight pattern.
  5. Add the nutmeg after the cheeses have melted.
  6. Dilute the starch with the kirsh or white wine and add it to the cheeses, constantly mixing.
  7. Serve with crusty bread and, if desired, vegetables.
