For traditional cheese fondue, the only real rules are: USE GOOD CHEESE. The best you can find. After all, that's the whole point of the dish.

I usually use a mixture of gruyere and emmenthal or maybe jarlsberg -- traditional swiss cheeses (I know, I know ... Jarlsberg is Norwegien but I like it).

Of course you can use lots of other types -- just make sure it is a good melting cheese (ie, no parmesan)

The other rule is not to omit the wine, as it is what helps prevent the cheese from curdling.

Swiss cheese fondue with wine to dip crusty pieces of sourdough bread. My mom used to make this in the 70's when I was a kid.
