Since having my first fondue cooking lesson, I have been sharing this Swiss tradition with every international guest that graces my door. For good reason- everyone wants to try a traditional Swiss Fondue. So what makes this recipe a little different? The fondue cheese is served in a bread bowl rather than in a hot pot at the table.

First, the instructions require you to hollow out the round of bread in big chunks that can be neatly carved into cubes. This is the most difficult part- of course it taste the same even if it doesn’t look as beautiful as the photos. Next, bake the bread cubes like croutons. Baking the bread cubes after tossing them with olive oil and garlic makes them nice and crunchy on the outside. Baking also makes the cubes easier to coat in gooey cheese without falling off your fork or breaking apart to become one-with-the-cheese-pot. Adding the hollowed bread to the oven also makes it nice and crispy and a warm pot for the melted cheese coming its way.

It is very important to follow the directions carefully for the cheese fondue, every ingredient is important and impacts flavor or consistency.

One more thing worth noting- dont ignore the “Good to know” section at the bottom- “Plan for approximately 200 g of cheese, per person”. The Good to know section helps give you all the right proportions to expand the recipe for more or less guest.

Now that you have the know how- its time to get the ingredients and gather up some friends!
