Recipe Thursdays: Cheese Fondue and Saint Romain Jacquère ''Cru Jongieux"

What is there not to love about fondue? There’s something about those kitschy fondue pots and the 70s retro vibe that the gooey melted goodness brings to the party. Besides, any recipe that combines wine, cheese and bread is a winner in our book. One of our favorite fondue recipes is this Foolproof Cheese Fondue from Fiona Beckett’s Matching Food and Wine. Emmental and Gruyère are the cheeses used in the traditional Swiss condiment, but you can play around with different combinations. Whatever you choose, make sure the cheeses are top quality since they are the star of the dish.

Fondue is not the only thing you’ll find consumed in the enchanting Alpine towns near Switzerland and eastern France. The area’s most popular grape, Jacquère, produces quaffable, lively dry white wines, such as Saint Romain's Jacquère ''Cru Jongieux". With a refreshingly light, clean palate, the wine is a match made in heaven with traditional cheese fondue. If you have never paired Jacquère with fondue, then you are in for a real treat.
