At-home awards

Feel like fondue? Served in individual mugs or a traditional fondue pot... any way is a good way to eat fondue! Try our Quebec-cheese fondue recipe, and pair it with one of our suggestions. Enjoy the show!

Fondue in a mug

Feel like curling up with friends in front of the TV to watch your favourite awards ceremony and snack on fondue all at the same time? Pour your fondue into a mug — it’ll keep hot for twenty minutes or so. Or you could invest in an actual fondue mug, complete with tea light. A great way for everyone to have his or her very own fondue pot. How fabulous!

The cheese

Our Quebec-cheese fondue features Perron Swiss, Cantonnier du Village and Migneron de Charlevoix. Having said that, you can use any cheese you want. Just make sure to use Swiss or Gruyere as your base. And for even more of a twist, swap the white wine for cider or beer.

Fondue with Quebec cheeses and white wine

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 10 minutes
Cost per serving: $10.00
4 servings

1.25 L (5 cups) grated Swiss Perron cheese
500 mL (2 cups) grated Cantonnier du Village, rind removed
500 mL (2 cups) grated Migneron de Charlevoix, rind removed
30 mL (2 tbsp) all-purpose flour
1 clove garlic, peeled and cut in half
375 mL (1 1/2 cups) white wine
30 mL (2 tbsp) kirsch
1 pinch ground nutmeg
Freshly ground black pepper
1 baguette, cut into cubes

1. In a large bowl, mix the cheeses together. Sprinkle with flour and stir well. Set aside. 2. Rub the inside of a fondue pot with a garlic clove half. 3. Add the white wine and kirsch. Cook over medium heat. 4. Just before the liquid starts to boil, gradually add the cheese mixture in small quantities at a time. 5. Stir with a wooden spoon. 6. Wait until the cheese has melted before adding more. 7. Add the nutmeg and pepper. 8. Continue cooking, stirring continuously. Boil for 2 to 3 minutes. 9. Place the pot over the fondue heat source. 10. Serve with the baguette cubes.

 

What to drink with this cheese fondue?

The acidity in white wine cuts through the fat in cheese and the roundness helps temper
the saltiness. Freixenet Elyssia is a lively white with notes of white flowers and fruit that subtly highlight the fondue flavours. For a more textural pairing, opt for La Plage, a Chardonnay with notes of pear and white flowers. Or finally, pair your cheese fondue with a nice cold beer. We recommend La Bittt à Tibi, a white ale that’s light and refreshing.
