 Whether it's for a romantic dinner or a festive party,  this recipe will come together quickly and is always a crowd pleaser! You can even make it ahead of time, refrigerate it, and warm it up before serving.  Pair your fondue with traditional artisan bread, or offer a mix of apples, potatoes, and veggies!

Serves 6-8

(Recipe developed by Lynne Vea)

8 ounces Gruyere cheese, grated

6 ounces Mount Townsend Creamery New Moon cheese, grated

2 ounces Mount Townsend Creamery Campfire cheese, grated

2 tablespoons flour
1 cup Washington state white wine (I love Lobo Hills Trente Cartons Riesling!)
1 teaspoon grated shallots

Pinch nutmeg
Salt and white pepper to taste

Toss the cheeses with the flour. Place the wine and the shallots in a heavy pot over medium heat and bring to a light simmer. Stir in the cheese a little at a time until the mixture is smooth and all of the cheese is melted. Add the remaining ingredients and transfer to a fondue pot or individual heated stoneware ramekins. Serve with as many of the following as suits your fancy!
