Yield: 1 servings
|1 \N||Garlic clove|
|1¾ cup||Dry Italian white wine|
|½ pounds||Fontina cheese; shredded|
|½ pounds||Taleggio cheese; shredded|
|3 tablespoons||Grappa or flavored Grappa; such as cherry|
|\N \N||Heavy cream|
|1 tablespoon||Balsamic vinegar|
|\N \N||Nutmeg; to taste|
|\N \N||Paprika; to taste|
|1 tablespoon||Crushed red pepper flakes|
Rub a heavy bottomed saucepan with garlic, add the wine and Grappa and heat over moderately high heat, being careful not to let boil. Reduce by ¾.
Have all ingredients measured and close by, as you will need to stir with one hand and add cheese with the other.
When wine starts to show small, tiny bubbles, but is not yet boiling , gradually add cheese while stirring constantly. When you start to feel a slight resistance to the spoon, add heavy cream to desired consistency, and the Balsamic vinegar.
Continue to cook until the fondue begins to thicken. Add to taste nutmeg, paprika, and red pepper flakes. Quickly transfer to a fondue pot.
Classically, fondue is served with fresh fruit, nuts, and crusty French bread.
For the Italian Fondue, it might be fun to serve an antipasto dish, breadsticks wrapped with proscuitto, sun-dried tomatoes, or even left over vegetables like asparagus and broccoli.
