To prepare the bread
Slice a lid approx. 2 cm thick off the top of the loaf. Carefully remove the bread from the inside, cut into cubes. Mix the bread cubes with the oil and garlic, spread onto a baking tray lined with baking paper.
Bake the bread cubes for approx. 10 mins. in the centre of an oven preheated to 180°C. Place the bread bowl and lid in the oven and bake alongside the bread cubes for the final 5 mins.
Rub the garlic around the fondue pot, place the cheese in the pan. Mix the wine with the cornflour and pour into the pot. Simmer the cheese over a low heat, stirring constantly until a creamy texture is achieved. Add the Kirsch, season. Pour the fondue into the bread bowl, dunk the croutons in the cheese.
