Perfect recipe for


  1. Start by preparing all the dippers and setting them aside.
  2. Cut the garlic clove in half and rub the half clove over the fondue pot. Add the wine and bring to a boil over medium heat. In the meantime, finely chop the Spanish pepper. When the wine is about to boil, lower the heat and gradually add the grated cheese. Stir continuously until the cheese is completely melted.
  3. Mix the cornstarch with 2 tbsp of water. This will prevent it from clumping. Add the cornstarch mixture to the fondue and keep stirring until very smooth. Add the chopped pepper and a little black pepper.
  4. Set the table, serve the cheese fondue and enjoy!
