    Three Cheese Fondue

    This fondue uses the traditional cheeses Gruyère, Emmental and Comté (all sold prepacked), but is given a seasonal twist by adding cider. If you prefer to keep it traditional, replace the cider with white wine. Serve with Waitrose Walnut Bread to dip in; its nutty flavour perfectly complements the cheeses.

    Cook's tips

    If you don't have a fondue set, make this fondue in a heavy-based pan, then pour it into a large heatproof bowl and serve immediately. To reheat, return it to the pan and stir over a medium heat for 3-5 minutes.
