Pickled Walnut Spiked Cheese Fondue


1. Rub the inside of a cheese fondue pot with the garlic clove to subtly add a little flavour, then discard.
2. Add the Gruyere, Emmental, white wine, corn flour and pickled walnut brine to the fondue pot and warm over a medium heat, stirring until smooth and thoroughly melted (alternatively you could do this on the hob and transfer to a large bowl).
3. Meanwhile arrange your dipping ingredients on a platter ready for serving.
4. Season the cheese to taste, then transfer to a fondue set and enjoy straight away.
