How to make a cheese fondue

  • Pour the cream in a steel bowl and add grated Parmesan cheese. The ratio of these two ingredients must be almost one by one.
  • If you want to make the mixture thicker add the potato.
  • Put the bowl on a pot with simmering boiling water inside creating a double boiler.
  • Whisk the cream until the mixture will be smooth but pay attention to never exceed 176°F otherwise your cream will be "mealy" due to a reaction of cheese.

How to serve a Parmigiano cheese fondue

  • Sprinkle with balsamic vinegar and serve the cheese fondue very hot with some some baked bread or crakers.
