Spicy Melted Cheese

This is basically a spicier version of fondue. I mixed together some of my favourite cheeses for this, since I sometimes have trouble deciding what it is I really want.

5 ounces shredded cheddar
8 ounces shredded muenster
8 ounces shredded swiss cheese
4 ounces shredded mozzarella
4 ounces chevre with herbs
8 ounces cream cheese
1 cup cream
1 minced shallot
3 minced cloves garlic
1 minced serrano
1 minced jalepeno
1 teaspoon cognac vinegar (substitute: red wine vinegar)
.5 cup sake
.25 teaspoon cumin
.5 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
.25 teaspoon marjoram
5 grams chopped white truffle (optional)

Melt in a double boiler. Transfer to a fondue pot and dip chips, bread and/or vegetables in it. Serves 6.
