Earth Hour Fondue Dinner

Jodi Pudge


  • 2 cups Gruyere, grated

  • 2 cups fontina, grated

  • 1 tbsp cornstarch

  • 3/4 cup chicken broth

  • 1/2 tsp garlic, chopped

  • 1 tbsp lemon juice


  • crusty French bread, torn into pieces

  • broccoli florets, (raw or steamed)

  • red sweet pepper, strips

  • steamed mini potatoes

  • slices of cooked chicken, or steak

  • slices of apple

  • slices of pear


  • Place cheese and cornstarch in a sealable bag and toss to coat. Combine chicken stock, garlic and lemon juice in a fondue pot over medium-low heat. (If you don't have a fondue pot, you can prepare it ahead of time on the stove, using a small heavy-bottomed pot.

  • For the party, set the pot on a rack over a few tea lights to keep warm.) When stock begins to bubble, reduce heat to low and begin adding cheese a handful at a time, whisking gently until melted and fully combined. You may need to increase the heat to get all the cheese melted, but don't bring to a boil. Keep warm over low heat until ready to serve. Offer a variety of dippers to make a full meal.
