Fondue originated in Switzerland in the 19th century and is made with a combination of cheeses typically including Swiss and Gruyère. White wine is traditionally added to the fondue, along with nutmeg and a little flour to keep the cheese from curdling. Fondue is served with small cubes of bread, which are dipped into the fondue with a small fork.
