some of the ready made packs are OK - the coop has ones with wine and everything in.

or you can buy mixed cheese for fondue from the cheese counter - mix it with some cornflour and wine - rub the pan with garlic... if in doubt about the foundu just tell everyone that they have to drink extra Williams before they have any
The Fromalp kits are also reasonable. They are a convenient option to making your own.

Does anyone have an easy recipe for Cheese fondue?
This question has been asked about a zillion times here. Try the search function to get many good answers. One of those long threads was here.

Since I try to make your life easy anyway, here is my special (yummy and done within minutes):

500 gr shredded Swiss cheese (half Gruyère/half Vacherin)
2 teaspoons flour
4 cloves fresh garlic
2.5 dl dry, not too fruity white wine
Pepper, nutmeg
a knife tip of baking soda
3 tablespoons (half a "Schnapsglass") cherry brandy (Kirsch)
2 loaves Italian or French bread, cut in cubes, crust on each side

Rub fondue pot with garlic; leave cloves in pot, pour in wine and cheese. Set over moderate heat stirring constantly with wooden spoon until cheese is melted. Add pepper and nutmeg to your taste. Then mix flour with half a glass of wine, add, stirr again and let simmer until the desired consistency is achieved, then add Kirsch and the baking soda, make sure it's not boiling over. Serve and keep bubbling hot over burner. Spear bread cubes through soft side into crust; dunk and swirl in fondue. Serves 2 - 3.

Bon appétit!

my advice....DON'T do it! Stick to good old cheese on toast (cheddar can now be found in a supermarket near you)....same thing isn't it
i agree, but for guests i might work a tad harder-- i think the Swiss/Franco tradition of Raclette is a better option.

Re: Cheese Fondue

A trick I learnt in France, and works a treat.... just before you're about to expire with cheesy-full-ness, break an egg into the remnants of the cheese, throw in some bread cubes and stir for about a minute - you are left with utterly delicious eggy, cheesy, bready goodness... the perfect end to a wonderful meal!
