Print Recipe


  • 12 ounces shredded or cubed gouda cheese
  • 4 ounces shredded or cubed swiss cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup white wine (I used Chardonnay)
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil finely chopped
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon cooking Sherry


  • In a small saucepan, saute the garlic over medium heat until translucent and fragrant, about 2 minutes.
  • Add the white wine and stir to combine.
  • Add in the cornstarch, both cheeses, salt and pepper to taste, and cooking Sherry. Use a whisk to stir and combine fully as the cheese melts. Stir continuously to make sure you don't burn the cheese.
  • Stir in the basil. If the fondue is too thick, add a bit more wine. If too thin, add a bit more cheese.
  • Remove from heat and serve immediately. Use crostini, bread cubes, apples, veggies, or chips as dippers.
  • Enjoy!


  • Use a whisk to mix the ingredients together. It will combine more easily than if using a spoon.
  • Don't have the pot on too high of a heat or the cheese at the bottom can burn. Keep stirring so that it doesn't catch.
  • Once the cheese has all melted, you can add in more wine or more cheese to make it your preferred consistency.
