I serve this in an appetizer portion, just a few bites per person. However, the recipe is easily doubled or tripled to suit any occasion.

Jarlsberg Cheese Fondue


  • 1 clove garlic (peeled and halved)
  • ½ cup fruity white wine
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ pound Jarlsberg cheese (grated)
  • ¼ pound fontina cheese (grated)
  • bread cubes, sliced fruit or boiled baby potatoes (as needed for dipping)


Generously rub the insides of a medium saucepan with the garlic clove; discard remnants.

Place the pan over medium heat. Whisk in the wine, lemon juice, and mustard. Bring the mixture to a simmer, then add the cheese 1 cup at a time stirring after each incorporation with a wooden spoon until smooth.

Pour into a fondue pot set over a heat source, or set the saucepan on a trivet. Serve immediately with the bread, fruit and/or potatoes.
