Serves: 8


  • ¾ cup milk
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 2 Tbsp. cream
  • ¼ cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 tsp. caraway seeds


  • Warm the milk in a small saucepan. In a separate saucepan, melt the butter on low heat and stir in the flour. Be careful not to let the flour burn.
  • Add the cream to the butter-and-flour mixture. Blend well, and then slowly pour into the warmed milk. Cook over low heat for about 10 minutes, whisking continuously to form a creamy sauce.
  • Add the cheese, a handful at a time. Stir the cheese continually in a sideways figure eight pattern. Wait until the cheese is completely melted before adding more. Don’t allow the fondue mixture to boil. Sprinkle the caraway seeds on top and serve immediately.
