West Country Fondue a la Nadia (AKA my own variation)

West Country Fondue a la Nadia recipe:

ingredients:
1/2 small onion, cut
1 1/4 cups dry cider (sweet cider will work just as well, tho')
1 teaspoon lemon juice
300 g (1 lb) Cheddar cheese, grated
200 g Smoked Cheddar cheese, grated
1 Tablespoon cornflour
2 Tablespoons dry sherry
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
(lots of) French bread cubes to serve

method:
Rub the inside of a flameproof dish with the cut side of the onion. Add the cider and lemon juice and heat until bubbling. Gradually stir in the cheese and heat gently, stirring, until it melts and begins to cook.

Blend the cornflour with the sherry and add the Worcestershire sauce. Add to the cheese and continue to heat, stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes until the mixture is thick and creamy.

Serve immediately, with the bread cubes.

Serves 6 4 Hungry Sous-Chefs!


Enjoy!

~Chef Nadia's note: always get at least one baguette of crusty bread per hungry person/guest; that way you are less likely to run out of bread!~

Chef Nadia's Tip #3: Make sure not to boil over, as boled cheese fondue is hard to clean off the cooktop. Also, no one likes frothy cheese!

Hi! This isn't a question about your recipes I'm afraid, but I was looking around the web for a fondue discussion forum and this place popped up.

I recently bought a used fondue set, the kind with a water tray under the main tray, and underneath that is a cannister for the heating. The cannister's lid has no holes in it - it only slides on or off, and looking inside it doesn't take liquid fuel, instead there's the remains of a candle. I was wondering if you have any suggestions about what kind of candles to use, because there's no place for the wax to escape... the cannister is round and 2.5" across, so standard tea lights are too tiny. Or would you know who else I might ask? I'm more interested in using the set for chocolate fondue instead of cheese. Thanks!
I'm sorry; I don't know. You could try googling the manufacturer, if you have their name. They may be able to help you.

[Mostly, this is just a recipe-posting site.]

Good Luck! :)
