  • In a saucepan add the wine and the minced garlic. Bring to the boil and reduce by half.
  • Turn the heat down to medium.
  • Gradually stir in the cheese a little at a time, making sure the cheese has melted before adding more.

  • Bring back to simmer and cook for 1-2 minutes until thickened and the flour has cooked out.
