Fondue is the perfect party or Christmas recipe to serve up as a crowd-pleasing centrepiece because let’s face it, who doesn’t like oodles of melted cheese?
This fondue with roast new potatoes is so easy to do that you can have it prepped and warming through in your pan in under ten minutes.
- 750g baby new potatoes
- 2tbsp olive oil
- 3 sprigs of thyme
- 100g Comtè, grated
- 100g Gruyere, grated
- 100g Emmental, grated
- 2tsp cornflour
- 1 garlic clove
- 350ml dry white wine
- A small glass of Calvados or kirsch (or any white wine or beer)
- Heat the oven to 200C, gas 6. Tip the potatoes into a large roasting tin, drizzle over the olive oil and toss with the thyme and pinch of sea salt. Roast for 20-25 minutes until cooked through and golden.
- Meanwhile, mix together the cheese and cornflour. Rub the base of a pan with the garlic then discard. Add the wine to the pan and heat until simmering gently. The trick is to add the cheese gradually, stirring all the time – like making risotto. As it melts, add another handful of cheese. Once all the cheese has been incorporated and the mixture has thickened, stir in the Calvados. Serve as a dip with the potatoes.
