Can you use flour instead of cornstarch for cheese fondue?

Don't add any flour or cornstarch. It makes the fondue grainy. It makes it so it doesn't soak into the bread properly.

How do you keep cheese fondue from clumping?

When making fondue, add a dry white wine or lemon juice for acidity (portions may vary depending on the recipe). This step helps keep the cheeses creamy and smooth. a splash of acid in the mix binds to the calcium in the cheese, while also diluting to preventing the proteins from clumping up.
