White Wine Swiss Fondue Recipe


  • Fondue is more of a method than a recipe. Generally the amount of liquid required for a cheese fondue recipe will be equal to half the amount of cheese.
  • When melting the cheese in the pot use a figure 8 pattern to ensure even melting.
  • A dry white wine is best, but use a wine that you personally like to drink and enjoy the taste of.
  • Offer guests multiple varieties of bread including a soft country bread (cubed or torn into bite-sized pieces) as well as a crusty whole grain variety.
  • Apple slices and fresh vegetables would also be delicious for dipping!

Take your photo with Daisy the cow (she’s adorable!), tag @OhioDairyFarmers on Instagram and use the hashtag #DaisyDoesMiami to be entered to win an ice cream maker—also to be given away at the end of the conference and shipped to the winner.
