Spinach Artichoke Fondue

 

Recipe adapted from Cuisine at Home, Nov/Dec 2012 Issue

2 cups shredded fontina cheese

 

½ cup shredded Asiago

 

1 Tbs. cornstarch

 

2 Tbs. unsalted butter

 

5 oz. frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry

 

2 cloves garlic, minced

 

½ – 1 tsp. red pepper flakes

 

½ tsp. anchovy paste

 

¼ tsp. freshly grated nutmeg

 

 ½ cup white wine

 

½ cup chicken broth

 

4 oz. cream cheese, softened and cubed

 

½ cup chopped artichoke bottoms, drained well

 

1 tsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice

 

Toss fontina and asiago cheese together with cornstarch.

Melt butter in a large sauce pan over medium heat; add spinach, garlic, red pepper flakes, anchovy paste, and nutmeg; cook until garlic softens, about 1 minute.

Add wine and broth; bring to a simmer.  Whisk in cheese mixture, a handful at a time, letting each handful melt fully before adding more.  Whisk in cream cheese cubes and stir until cubes melt.

Stir in artichokes, and lemon juice; season to taste with salt and pepper, then transfer to a warm fondue pot and serve with assorted breads, vegetables, sliced apples, pretzels, and crackers.

Makes approx. 3 cups.
