Recipe: Swiss Crab Fondue

This is a slight variation on the Classic Swiss Fondue. The only change is no garlic is rubbed on the insides of the fondue pot… and instead of kirsch, you use dry sherry…

As with the Classic Swiss fondue… I would use the Rhine Riesling for the dry white wine.

The cheeses and the crab go together so well… this is a great supper … serve with a big salad and a glass of wine…. Just delicious!
