"Try serving with pear slices, they go great with this cheese fondue."
"I use Italian seasoning instead of only thyme, it seems to works great. Also, try using fontina cheese to either replace the mozzarella or use 1 cup of each, in addition to the asiago cheese. I like to use all three. Fontina cheese melts really well and has a mild, somewhat nutty flavor similar to Gruyere."
