Directions

  1. In large bowl, toss together OKA L' Artisan Cheese, OKA Cheese, Cheddar and cornstarch; set aside.

  2. In heavy-bottomed medium saucepan, combine beer, garlic and thyme. Set over high heat and bring to a boil; immediately reduce heat to low. Using a fork, remove and discard the garlic and thyme. Gradually add cheese mixture, whisking until cheese is completely melted between additions. Cook 4 to 5 min., or until thickened (if cheese starts to stick to bottom of saucepan, turn off heat). Stir in chives, mustard and pepper.

  3. Pour mixture into heated fondue pot. Sprinkle with walnuts. Serve with baguette slices for dipping.
