METHOD

  1. Warm the grape juice (if making for children) or white wine (if it's for adults) with the garlic cloves and lemon juiceb until it reaches the boil.
  2. Mix the corn flour with the water and whisk into the grape juice.
  3. Take off the heat and gradually stir in the Emmental and Gruyère, keep whisking until it’s melted and smooth. Add the nutmeg.
  4. Add the cherry liqueur (if you’re using it) and keep the cheesy sauce warm. If you have a 70’s retro fondue set - PERFECT!
