 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      pound         Gruyere cheese, coarsely grated
    8      ounces        Emmentaler cheese, coarsely grated
    4      teaspoons     cornstarch
    1                    garlic clove -- halved
    1 1/2  cups          dry white wine, preferably Neufchatel
    2      teaspoons     lemon juice
    1 1/2  tablespoons   kirsch, if desired
                         Freshly ground pepper
                         Freshly grated nutmeg, pinch
 
 
 In a large bowl combine the cheeses and cornstarch and toss to coat. 
 Rub
 the inside of a heavy saucepan with the garlic and discard the 
 garlic. Add
 the wine and lemon juice and bring the mixture to a boil. Stir in the
 cheese mixture gradually over moderate heat, stirring until smooth.
 
 Stir in the kirsch, if desired. Season with pepper and nutmeg. Simmer
 mixture for 2-3 minutes and transfer to a fondue stand set over a low
 flame. Serve immediately, taking care to remember to continually stir 
 the
 fondue to prevent it from separating.
 
 Yield: serves 4-6
