Recipes Tips

If you're new to fondue, here are a few tips to ensure success:

1. Use good quality cheese: The flavor of your fondue will depend largely on the quality of cheese you use. Invest in a good quality Gruyere and Emmental for best results.

2. Grate your cheese finely: Finely grated cheese will melt more easily and smoothly than larger pieces.

3. Don't overheat the cheese: Overheating the cheese can cause it to separate and become greasy. Keep the heat on low or use a fondue pot with a temperature control to avoid this.
