    This sounds awesome. I’ll try this with my inherited vintage fondue set. The Kirsch is an interesting ingredient, as is the cornflour. Not sure what the baking soda is for, but what the heck, I’ll throw it in.

    OMG…we had this exact same fondue set. A friend gave us this around 1972. He brought shrimp and some kind of sauce and we dipped away.

    I had, at one time, three fondue pots. One was electric. I used it for cooking meats for the fondue parties I would have, back in the day. We would do cheese fondue with a salad for appetizer course, then meat, then chocolate fondue with strawberries and angel food cake for dessert. I have NO fondue pots now as I do not entertain at home like I did in the 70s and 80s. They have these great places called Restaurants now.

    Not a bad recipe, if a little basic. But cheese fondue is a specialty of SWITZERLAND, not Sweden!
