Peachie's Perfect Fondue Recipe

Peachie Thompson · January 12, 2024

You asked for it, so here it is! I'm thrilled to share with you my recipe for creating the most delicious fondue. This isn't just any fondue - it's made in my treasured Staub Swiss Alps fondue set that journeyed all the way from Switzerland to my kitchen (thanks to my awesome sister in law)! This recipe is a blend of classic Swiss tradition and my personal touches. Plus, for those of you in the USA, I've included easily available alternatives for some traditional ingredients. And don't miss out on my exclusive link at the end for an alternative of this gorgeous pot (since mine is not available in the USA).


  1. 3 cups Gruyère cheese, grated
  2. 3 cups Vacherin Fribourgeois cheese or Fontina/Emmental/Aged Gouda, grated
  3. 1 clove garlic
  4. 1 1/4 cups dry white wine like Swiss Fendant or Sauvignon Blanc/Dry Riesling/Pinot Grigio
  5. 1 tsp lemon juice
  6. 1 shot of kirsch (cherry brandy)
  7. 1 tsp cornstarch
  8. Freshly ground nutmeg and pepper, to taste
  9. A loaf of crusty bread, cut into bite-size cubes or vegetables and meats


  1. Garlic-Infused Pot: Start by rubbing the inside of your Staub fondue pot with a clove of garlic.
  2. Prepare the Cheese: Mix the grated Gruyère and your choice of Vacherin Fribourgeois substitute in a bowl.
  3. Heat the Wine: Heat the wine and lemon juice in the fondue pot until hot but not boiling.
  4. Melt the Cheese: Gradually add the cheese to the pot, stirring in a zig-zag pattern.
  5. Flavor and Thicken: Stir in the kirsch mixed with cornstarch into the pot.
  6. Season: Add a pinch of nutmeg and freshly ground pepper.
  7. Check Consistency: Adjust the thickness with extra wine or cornstarch if needed.
  8. Serve and Enjoy: Keep the fondue warm over a low flame, and dip bread cubes using fondue forks.

Remember, fondue is as much about the experience as it is about the taste. Gather your friends or family, and enjoy this heartwarming dish from my kitchen to yours. The key to a great fondue is not just in the ingredients, but in the love and joy you put into making it. And with my Staub set, every fondue night becomes a special occasion. My kids and husband LOVE fondue nights!

Warmly, Peachie 🍑

Tips for the Perfect Fondue:

  • Wine Choice: The wine you choose can really influence the flavor of your fondue. A dry, crisp white wine works best.
  • Cheese Quality: Always opt for high-quality cheese. It makes a world of difference in the texture and taste.
  • Stirring Technique: Remember, the zig-zag stirring pattern helps prevent the cheese from clumping.
  • Serving Tip: Keep the fondue warm but not too hot to maintain the perfect consistency.
  • Accompaniments: While bread is traditional, feel free to get creative with veggies, apples, or even some cured meats.
