1st Cheese Fondue ever

at the Androuet Cheese Shop at Spitalfields Market, London
UPDATE: many comments were received for this post. I am copy and pasting the feedbacks here
  1. this place looks scary
  2. you are supposed to each the bread with the cheese, but not the meat
  3. they have no idea what they are doing
  4. but you having to stir it
  5. they mixed two meals that has nothing to do with each other into one
  6. this is a national dish, anyone can do it (in switzerland), and it's very easy to do
  7. summer will be too hot for the cheese, you do it quite often when it's cold
  8. red wine?! *wide eyes then both hands on his eyes*
  9. normally £140 for this?!
  10. "you eat the salty meat with the bread, not with cheese"
  11. you should leave it just before it bubble, and if it bubbles, it's too hot.
  12. hot cheese is at the bottom, that's why you need to stir
  13. don't eat leftover cheese, that's the best way to get food poisoning
  14. white wine, no red wine.
  15. stir and don't drink water
  16. a website teaching how to eat fondue http://eliadorcuisine.canalblog.com/archives/2010/ 02/24/17032259.html (translated) When you stir up your fondue on the bottom, made attention not put a too strong fire, which would make precipitate cheese and would make it dissociate. In the same way, you NEVER stop stirring up to the complete cast iron of cheese! Separation in two phases is the risk if you do not respect this council. Small Swiss trick: always turn in the same direction, your chances of success will be better
  17. * Do not be used as water with the fondue. To drink water with a met 100% cheese makes digestion much more difficult. Indeed, more there is water in your stomach, more acidity is weak. A low acidity will slow down the digestion of the cheese, which will thus have time to form a ball causing a long and not very pleasant digestion. Prefer fruit juices, or better, white wine, whose acidity will contribute to a faster digestion.
  18. " as they were lot of fault in yours: drinking water, having red wine, no gruyere, and the list go on... Next time we shall try a fondue neuchateloise with some proper kirsch! Or we can do a raclette :)"
  19. On sainsbury £3.25 Swiss Fondue box: "You still need a caquelon and some Kirsch :) "
