Adding Flavor to Your Cheese Fondue

April 20, 2010

The traditional cheese fondue recipe can be flavored with many different herbs or spices according to your own taste.  Here are a few suggestions you might want to try.

Dry Mustard or Grey Poupon Mustard – 1/2 teaspoon gives a nice zing

Nutmeg – 1 pinch adds an earthy, nutty flavor

White Pepper – 3-4 squeezes from a pepper mill are ideal

Onion – If you really like onion, try this!  In a fry pan, saute 1/4 cup onions until they begin to carmelize.  Lower your heat and add your wine and lemon mixture for 2 minutes.  Strain out the onions and pour out your wine mixture into your fondue pot.  Begin adding your cheese as usual.  Or, add a pinch of onion powder to your mixture.

Garlic – Use fresh garlic on the inside of your pot before adding your cheese, or add a pinch of powdered garlic to your cheese for added flavor.  You can also add 1 diced clove of fresh garlic to your sauted onion and wine mixture then strain before transfering to your fondue pot.

Italian spices and tomato paste – Mix in 1 teaspoon of italian spices with 3-4 tablespoons of tomate paste for a nice italian flavor.  Try adding the onion and garlic mixture too!
