Traditionally when fondue is made you begin with rubbing the garlic cloves in the fondue pot & then add wine & cheese to it.I made fondue for my family on Christmas in the same traditional manner not letting it loose it's flavor.
Ingredients
  Grated gruyeres cheese 10 Ounce
  Grated gruyere cheese 10 Ounce
  Grated swiss cheese 10 Ounce
  Dry white wine 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Lemon juice 1 Teaspoon
  Kirsch 2 Tablespoon
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm), halved
  Cornstarch 2 Teaspoon
  Paprika 1 Dash
  Nutmeg 1 Dash
Directions

Rub inside of fondue pot with garlic. Pour in 1/2 wine and lemon juice & let it heat,over medium heat,till bubbles start to form,then reduce heat to low. Stir in 1/3 cheese with wooden spoon. Slowly add remaining cheese and wine.
In small bowl, mix Kirsch and 1 teaspoon cornstarch. Blend into cheese. Cook,stirring constantly, until thick and smooth. May add another 1 teaspoon cornstarch to thicken if necessary. Add nutmeg and paprika.

Great recipe! Try using Emmenthaler and Gruyere Swiss cheeses for wonderful nutty flavour- must be imported from Switzerland for the right taste. Shanti/Mary-Anne
