Step 1

Put the cream, Black Cow cheese and vodka into a bowl over a pan of simmering water, stir-every so often until the cheese has melted and the mixture is of a thick, sauce-like consistency.

Step 2

If you have a fondue set then simply put the ingredients into the pot, light the burner and stir every so often.

Step 3

Season to taste and add more vodka if you wish.

Step 4

To serve, carefully skewer anything you wish to dip (ie potatoes, fresh or cooked vegetables, cubes of bread etc) onto a fondue skewer or wooden kebab stick and get stuck in.
