Cooking with Sake: Cheese Fondue

This dish locks in the rich flavor and the nutrients of cheese!
Cheese fondue can be troublesome since we have to keep it heated so that the cheese does not congeal. To make it easier, we have made this recipe that uses milk, cream sauce, and sake to keep the cheese smooth. With this recipe, you can enjoy cheese fondue at a slow pace, even while drinking.

Cheese fondue is often cooked with white wine, but it also matches perfectly well with sake. In fact, adding sake not only helps lock in the rich flavor but also the nutrients of cheese such as amino acids. The alcohol will evaporate when heated, so children can also enjoy this dish.
