Preparation

Fondue

Dredge the cheeses in the flour. Place the wine and the shallots in a heavy pot over medium heat and bring to a light simmer. Stir in the cheese a little at a time until the mixture is smooth and all of the cheese is melted. Add the 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.

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