Best Cheese For Fondue
Written By A Special Writer : Your One and Only, Amazing, Awesomely Unique FOOD Expert and Guru….. Mr. Efrain E. Silva! ( Woot Woot! )
Many cheeses can work nicely here, but I would have to say, that if you are going for a nice classic – style fondue, all in all, then a gruyere cheese is perhaps the best choice. Don’t hold me to that, now, folks —- that is just my take on the whole thing, given my many years of experience in both cheese and fonduing, heh he he he he heh. But of course, to each his own… and each person has their own taste in quality and what makes a superb fondue.
Now, then, also, you might want to think about the fact that gouda cheese is also known as one of the best ones when it comes to a fondue. Heck, you could even mix various Swiss cheeses, as well, as long as you throw in a little bit of gouda ( or heck, gruyere ) to that mix. All in all, this has been delightful, according to many others and not just me. We can mostly all agree on that.
In addition, you will want to know that it can generally be a pretty good idea, more or less, to simply just start off with a nice, bright yellow gouda ( even more yellow than gruyere, it should be, if you really want to take things to the next level ) . It is usually smokey, in many cases ( or you can smoke it yourself, of course, if you know how to properly do it ) . It is also somewhat woody, which is good. It is wood – fired in many cases. This creamy Dutch cheese can get semi – hard without too much trouble, which will, in turn, mean that you can more easily melt it if you wish to do so later…. a perfect fondue delight, at the end of the day, I would have to confess.
This cheese, as a matter of fact, is one of the most globally – popular ( I kid you not, as popular consensus would hold this true, in fact ) for when it comes to melting. People love to melt this cheese in all kinds of creations and all over the world. No joke. So with a basic, or even more complex, fondue process…. it’s perfect. A match made right in the Gates of Heaven, as some would like to say. He he he he heh.
Have you given a thought to trying some comte cheese for your fondues as well? Comte cheese, in fact, is popular for this, too. And it comes right from France ( holding true experts in wine and cheese, if you ask me ) . This kind of cheese also ages for much longer than other kinds, an interesting fact to note about it. Check it out if you can.
We sure hope this has helped you!
