Directions

Fondue

Toss cheeses together in a large bowl. Dredge cheeses in flour. Combine wine and shallots in a heavy pot over medium heat and bring to a slow simmer. Stir in cheese a little at a time until the mixture is smooth and all cheese is melted. Add remaining ingredients and transfer to a fondue pot or individual stoneware ramekins. Serve with crusty rosemary bread, and roasted apples and butternut squash. (See below for other dipping options.)

Roasted apples and butternut squash

Preheat oven to 425° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Place squash in a small bowl and coat with half the oil and maple syrup. Season with a little salt and pepper. Place apples in a second bowl and repeat the process. Place squash on the prepared baking sheet and roast for 10 minutes. Add apples and cook for 10 more minutes, or until squash is tender.
