Some fondue recipes based on The Melting Pot’s menu include traditional Swiss fondue and cheddar cheese fondue. To make traditional Swiss fondue, heat 4 ounces of dry white wine and 2 or 3 chopped cloves of garlic in a fondue pot. In a separate bowl, grate 1/2 pound of Emmentaler cheese and 1/2 pound of Gruyere cheese. Add 2 tablespoons of flour, and toss the cheese to coat.
Add 1/4 cup of fresh lemon juice to the fondue pot. Once the garlic becomes fragrant, transfer 1/3 of the cheese to the pot. Stir the mixture until the cheese melts, and then repeat the process until all the cheese is incorporated. Add freshly ground black pepper and 1 ounce of cherry liqueur before serving.
To make cheddar cheese fondue, heat a fondue pot or double boiler to medium heat, and add 1/2 cup of Coors Light beer, 2 teaspoons of chopped garlic, 2 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce and 2 teaspoons of dry mustard powder. Shred 6 ounces of medium-sharp cheddar cheese and 2 ounces of Emmentaler Swiss cheese, and toss it with 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour in a separate bowl. When the liquid mixture is warm, add the cheese in thirds, whisking the fondue until the cheese melts between each addition.
