Method: Take a fondue pot. If you don’t have one, use a good non-stick pot. Cut the garlic clove in small fine pieces or grate it straight into the pot using a cheese grater. Now, add the cream to the pot. Light the flame on low, and warm the mixture. Ensure that it does not reach boiling point. Now add the mustard powder, flour, and grated cheese (a little at a time) and let it melt slowly. Keep stirring with a wooden spatula. Once all the cheese has melted, season with salt and pepper and serve immediately with choice of dippers.
