Product Description

What a fantast product this is - a 400g pack of fondue cheese - made from a combination of Gruyere and Emmental cheeses by Emmi, Europ's leading provider of premium Swiss Dairy Products. This is an ambient product - so no need to refrigerate it - and has a long shelf life, so a gread standby for unexpected guests. So simple to prepare, you just snip the bag, and pour the contents in to a cast iron fondue pot (or saucepan) and bring to the boil on the stove. Just add bread cubes, cherry tomatoes, cooked new potatoes and some "al dente" potatoes for a super easy relaxed meal. This pack contains enough for 4 as a starter or 2 as a main course. Fondue is experiencing a resurgence this Winter as consumers turn to comfort food in the colder weather. Fondue is made using delicious Swiss cheeses, which have a good level of maturity and distinctive taste, and contain no additives or preservatives. Fondue is hip to dip. There is a sense of novelty and fun surrounding the experience of huddling around a table and watching your food cook in front of you, it's as much about the social companionship as the unconventional style of cooking. However, you don't need to hit the slopes to enjoy après ski cuisine - Emmi's pre packed fondue is available in leading UK supermarkets and is easy to prepare, combining convenience with the sumptuous taste of mature Swiss cheese. The fondue contains genuine Swiss Emmental and Le Gruyère cheeses, and is made to a traditional recipe dating back to 1958. Full instructions are printed on pack, so even first time users have nothing to worry about!

5.0 out of 5 stars An elegant and easy meal for two 10 Feb 2013
By Justbooking - Published on Amazon.com

I worked overseas for a distributor of another Swiss fondue mix and cannot understand why more Americans haven't discovered how easy it is to make fondue at home. We used to provide samples in supermarkets and it became a hot seller - we had trouble keeping it in stock. The key is to try it once - and you'll be sold. It's super easy! All it takes is one large French baguette, cut into small 1 inch pieces (Whole Food's has the best bread). Then, cut open one of these shelf-stable packs and heat over low heat for about five minutes and serve.

You will need a fondue set (pot, warmer and forks) but we've been known to start eating it while it's heating up on the stove.

In terms of Fondue Suisse - it is basically identical to other competitor brands sold in Switzerland, such as Chalet. And it has most of the same ingredients you would use if you started from scratch: Swiss cheese (52%), white wine, water, potato starch, kirsch liqueur (a cherry brandy sold in wine stores), salt, emulsifying salts (E339) and spices.

If you made it from scratch, you'd use Gruyere and/ or Emmentaler swiss cheese. Grate it. Add white wine, corn starch mixed with a bit of water first as a thickener, kirsch, pepper and nutmeg. And it would cost more, take about 30 minutes longer and taste about the same (we add way more kirsch and wine).

If you decide to buy it from a marketseller at amazon, take notice of the delivery time. Mine took two weeks to arrive as it was shipped from the UK. It arived in a padded envelope, crushed. While it did affect the inner pouch and was delicious, I was dumbfounded to later find the same exact fondue mix in my local high end grocer - it is distributed by Emmi Rroth USA out of Winsconsin, in packaging geared for the US market. It costs a little more but it's worth it instead of waiting so long for it. It is usually found in the deli section unrefrigerated or with the cheeses - Whole Foods sometimes carries it as well.

Traditionally 1" squares of bread or baguettes are dipped in cheese fondue, but the distributor above lists other suggestions on the package: cubed ham or turkey, grilled beef, chicken or vegetables; roasted mushrooms; baby carrots; cherry tomatoes; boiled new potatoes; chunks of apples and pears; red and green grapes; boiled shrimp; steamed broccoli and florets. My Swiss boss would cringe but I know my kids do like some of these - especially the potatoes (mini gold yukons) and the broccoli.

Lastly, bypass thin metal fondue pots you see in US home stores - these don't work well for cheese fondue. Go for a porcelain or cast iron (preferable as they last longer) which distributes heat carefully. Esther's European Imports (formerly Roberts European Imports) is one of the best distributors of these in the US - please see link in the comments section.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not my favorite! 29 Mar 2014

Its ok. I enjoyed this fondue mix but I have had others that I prefer. I actually added nutmeg and paprika to spice it up a bit. Overall, a bit bland. Would like more of the gruyere nutty stronger taste. Mix is a bit "bitty" when melting. Had to add some lemon juice to help consistency.

4.0 out of 5 stars Melted cheese in a shelf-stable pouch!` 19 Dec 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

How can this possibly go wrong?
I will begin with my credentials. I was born in Switzerland and lived there as a child. I have eaten more cheese than any person ought to. Finally, I spend way too much money on high-end cheese.
Now that you know that I'm a person to listen to on all things fromage, I'll let you know that this is solid fondue (literally as well as metaphorically). It's much better than the brands I find in local grocery stores and at a slightly better price.

The kirschwasser taste is a bit more pronounced in this mixture than many I have tried. Not a bad thing, just thought I'd mention. The cheese is rich and robust. Just add some nutmeg and off you go.

This isn't the greatest fondue ever. What do you expect? It comes in a silvery pouch! But it will serve you well on those cold winter nights when you just want hot, melted cheese. I have no complaints.

Great product, easy to make, heat it up (just don't heat too vigorously) enough for two hungry adults in each packet, or one adult and two kids. I did find a similar product cheaper at Safeway in the end.

This is overpriced....but it's very yummy. Easy to make. The convenience factor is why I'm willing to pay the money though as opposed to making it.
