I am dipped

Well last night was a lot of fun. And the food was great. Thank you all so much for joining me in a super yummy meal. I can't wait to see everyone in December.

Green Fondue with Fresh Herbs
1 small clove garlic
1 C med-dry white wine
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 1/4 lbs Gouda or Edam cheese, shredded
1 Tbsp potato flour or cornstarch (cornflour)
1/4 C chopped fresh parsley
2 Tbsp chopped fresh chives
2 tsp tarragon (I didn't use this since I didn't have it)
pinch of cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp ground white pepper
1 Tbsp gin

Rub a medium, heavy saucepan with garlic clove. Add wine and bring just to a boil. Add lemon juice and immediately lower heat to medium-low. Toss cheese with potato flour or corn starch, then add to the pot by the handful, stirring with each addition until just melted. Add herbs, seasonings, and gin. Cook for 2-3 minutes then transfer to a warmed fondue pot. Serve with bread, vegetables, and meals alongside.
