Many of us fall prey to the sniffles because of the change in weather. When it starts to rain, we seek the most comfort after a hectic and stressful day. What could be better than sitting down with friends and family and telling stories over a bowl of warm cheese fondue? I haven't met anyone who doesn't like cheese, and a fondue is so simple that anyone can prepare it. Just make sure that you have the ingredients stocked in your pantry so you won't have to brave a side trip to the supermarket after being stuck in a rush-hour traffic jam.

When you're having one of those days, this is something you can look forward to when you get home - a warm pot of cheese fondue and the company of the people you love.

You will need:

1 garlic clove, minced

1/2 cup chicken stock

juice of 3 calamansi

300 grams cheddar cheese, grated

300 grams Emmental cheese, grated

1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons water

a pinch of salt

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Here's how:

1. Rub the bottom and sides  of the fondue pot with garlic pieces. Set aside.

2. In a stockpot, pour in chicken  stock and calamansi juice and place over low heat.

3. Gradually add the grated cheeses. Stir until completely melted.

4. In a small bowl, combine the flour with water then add to the melted cheese. Cook for 2 to 3 more minutes, stirring continuously.

5. Add the remaining ingredients to taste.

6. Serve the dish in a fondue pot over a burner. Serve with cubed French bread, steamed vegetables, and slices of your favorites fruits.
