Written By A Special Writer : Your One and Only, Amazing, Awesomely Unique FOOD Expert and Guru….. Mr. Efrain E. Silva! ( Woot Woot! )
Let me talk you into why I think some of the 5 best cheeses for fonduing are these here listed right below, you guys. And always, be sure to tell us what you think. You agree or not? No matter… all opinions are important here, and they are, after all, just personal opinions! Here is mine, my top 5…. I hope you enjoy and share….
- Havarti – if you can find some of this cheese on any local store shelf, or on the web, then get some. Grate a good 4 ounces of it, along with an additional ( yet optional ) 6 ounces of emmental cheese and some parmigiano – reggiano ( ideally just a couple ounces or less of this, he heh ) . Get a couple good table – spoons of corn starch and some table salt, and you have everything you need for a nice, fondue – mixing experience, at the end of the day. This is a recipe for awesomeness, and Havarti is the most central ingredient that makes it all happen. It is smooth and delightfully edible, no less when melted or fondued, of course. Try it and you will see for yourself.
- Gruyere – Gruyere is also one of the best cheeses around, and when you want to fondue, this is a top contender, too. It comes in different yellows as well. Make sure to pick something that is a bit firm…. but not overly ‘too hard’. It melts well.
- Swiss – Swiss cheese, while one of the most common cheeses out there, still kicks butt. And on the fondue side of things, it’s no less the same. It’s a top fondue choice and is even better when mixed ( for instance, when you mix 1 – 3 different types of cheeses from Switzerland, of which you can find a whole list of options for these online, of course ) .
- Cheddar – Cheddar is equally popular to Swiss, of course ( or at least, it is so here in the US and in Europe, respectively ) . This cheese is also a solid fondue cheese and has no problem being super delicious, nutritious, and just the right amount of salty, even after ( and especially after ) you melt of fondue it. Wonder why so many grilled – cheese sandwiches are made from this cheese? It tastes amazing!
- Comte – This cheese comes from France and is top – of – the – line for any kind of fondue. You can easily fondue it for an hour or longer and will find that it tastes smooth and buttery when it’s been properly melted away. It does not lose its taste or nutrients, either.
I hope you liked my top 5 picks. Maybe you yourself have 5 others you wish to add to my little list here? Please let me know.
