150 g mushroomsadd 10 minutes before the end of cooking time
3 tbsp. creamadd
  • If you start with a *really* hot pan, the juices will be sealed into the meat and it will taste better.
  • If I don't have bacon, I add Bac-O's at the same time as the bouillon.
  • Use lamb or beef, and try to cook each piece of meat individually (i.e., as if you were cooking burgers on the grill).
  • Always use fresh thyme and rosemary--a "branch" is about 2 to 3 tsp.
  • If red wine is not suitable, use additional beef bouillon.
  • Canned mushrooms are okay.
  • Serves 2 to 4 (usually just me and my hungry man)--serve over wide noodles, with salad.

Cheese fondue Switzerland (CH)

1 clove garlicRub the inside of the fondue pot with a clove of garlic, crush the garlic and put it in the pot.
3 dl white wine
600 g Gruyere cheese of different maturity, coarsely grated
Add the cheese and wine and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
1 shot of kirsch (cherry schnapps)
3 tsp cornflour (Maizena)
Blend the cornflour with the kirsch and add to the mixture. Continue stirring and bring back to a boil again.
freshly ground pepper, ground nutmegSeason with pepper and nutmeg and serve.
bread cut into little squaresInstead of squares of bread, cooked potatoes cut into slices also go very well with fondue.
During the meal, the fondue should continue to simmer. Always stir the fondue well with the squares of bread so that it remains smooth. Garnish with those little pickles (cornicons, I think they're called) and those little onions that come in a jar (pearl onions?).
