Anniversary Fondue

It was our anniversary and for whatever reason, we are fans of fondue on romantic nights. We ended up going to a movie and not getting home until after 10, so we cobbled together a tasty cheese fondue, in which we indulged right before bed.

Pickled Onions, Avocado, Tomato and Radish

Whole Wheat Sour Dough

Beer-Spiked Cheddar and Goat Cheese Fondue
We didn't have white wine, but we did have some heffeweisen. It worked quite well, in a pinch, and gave the fondue and earthier flavor than the wine would have imparted.

-1/2 a good quality beer
-3 oz goat cheese
-8 oz shredded white cheddar
-2 tb cornstarch
-1 clove garlic
-1 ts lemon juice

Rub the bottom of the pot with the garlic and toss. Add the beer and simmer. Coat the cheddar in the cornstarch. Add the goat cheese to the beer, then add the cheddar, slowly, stirring to incorporate each added batch. When smooth, start dipping in the veggies and bread.
