Ballymaloe Cheese Fondue
A fondue part is so retro, terrific fun.
Choose your seat carefully because if you drop the bread into the fondue you must kiss the person on our right – this could be your big chance!Myrtle Allen devised this Cheese Fondue recipe made from Irish Cheddar cheese. A huge favourite at Ballymaloe. Even though it's a meal in itself it can be made in minutes and is loved by adults and children alike. A fondue set is obviously an advantage but not totally essential.
Serves 2 – perfect for everything from kids tea to a romantic supper.
2 tablespoons dry white wine
2 small cloves of garlic, crushed
2 teaspoons Ballymaloe Tomato Relish or any tomato chutney
2 teaspoons freshly chopped parsley
175g(6oz) grated mature Cheddar cheese

Putthe white wine and the rest of the ingredients into a fondue pot or small saucepan and stir. Just before serving put over a low heat until the cheese melts and begins to bubble.
