swiss kirsh fondue

This is one of the best cheese fondue recipes I have found. We had it at a little authentic Swiss restaurant in Moose at the base of the Tetons. My boys LOVE it and we never have leftovers!!

1 medium clove garlic
2 cups white cooking wine
1 pound good Swiss cheese, shredded
1 teaspoon cornstarch
3 tablespoons kirsch
pinch ground nutmeg
dash hot pepper sauce
French bread or other crusty bread, about 2 loaves, cut into pieces and toasted
(all pieces should have some crust)

Rub a fondue pot with garlic clove. Pour in wine and place over low heat. When air bubbles begin to rise to the surface, begin adding shredded cheese. Stir constantly until all cheese is melted. Dissolve cornstarch in the kirsch then add to cheese fondue mixture. Continue to cook and stir for 2 to 3 minutes, then season with nutmeg and pepper sauce. Place pot over alcohol burner or other low heat source for serving. Serve with fondue forks for guests to use to spear bread and dip into cheese fondue.
