How to Make Swiss Cheese Fondue? FAQs and TIPS
Fondue Tip #1: Make sure to coat the cheese with flour. This is a pretty important step to make sure your cheese melt into a smooth creamy delicious treat. (It’s not the end of the world if you forget, just check out our troubleshooting steps below)
Fondue Tip #2: Make sure your wine is hot enough BEFORE adding the cheese. The wine needs to at least be warm to the touch before adding the cheese. You don’t need to bring it to a boil, but if it’s too cold when you add your cheese the cheese will be clumpy and harder to get to a smooth consistency.
Fondue Tip #3: HAVE FUN! Take it slow, stir, stir, stir and if you get in a pickle check out our troubleshooting steps below. Even if it doesn’t look amazing it will still TASTE amazing. Have fun making it, and don’t let perfection get in the damn way.

For clumpy fondue: Did you forget to coat your cheeses with the little bit of flour? If you did, it’s not too late after you sprinkle the dry white whine a little bit at a time sprinkle the flour over the top of your fondue and gently fold in.
For stringy fondue: If it’s stringy, you might have added the cheese to the liquid before the liquid was a nice temperature to melt the cheese.
