And we, of course, offer to cook a traditional Swiss dish – fondue. Yes,this is the national dish of this beautiful country.
We present you the traditional recipe of hearty, delicious, incredibly fragrant treats.
Amenassi cheese - 0.6 kg
clove of garlic
half a glass of white wine
1.5 tsp starch (better corn)
80 ml cherry liqueur
Heat-resistant ceramic or porcelain form grate garlic. Pour the wine into it and put on a slow heat. It is necessary to heat it slowly, otherwise the garlic will get the "wrong" flavor. It is also important to warm up, not to heat the wine.
Cheese finely cut or three on a coarse grater. Lower into the wine and, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, melt the cheese crumbs.
Important! Stir not in a circle, as we used to do, but as if drawing a sign of infinity. So Oh acceptance allow to achieve uniform heating of the cheese mass and will not allow it to condense on the walls and burn.
Intensify the fire and wait until the cheese melts and bubbles appear on its surface.
In 3-4 tablespoons of water, dilute the starch (the water should be cold or at room temperature), season with nutmeg and pepper. Pour the cherry tincture. Stir until smooth. Fondue's ready.
A bowl of fondue swap on a very low heat. White bread cut into slices, brown it in the toaster or in the oven. A bowl of bread put together with fondue.
They eat fondue, dipping bread in it. In Switzerland, fondue is not washed down with wine, but a Cup of strong coffee at the end of the meal will be ideal.
