A great family and friends winter warmer
Some foods just cheer us up in winter and fondue is definitely one of them. Hot bubbly cheese, warming our hands and our sharpened winter appetites.
Swiss˘tel Sydney is again offering traditional, a delectable Swiss cheese and chocolate fondue experience for the winter months. So come along and enjoy this perfect companion to the colder months.
Swiss˘tel use a traditional fondue recipe and a combination of Swiss cheeses - Emmental and GruyŔre, Kirsch (a clear fruit brandy), white wine, garlic and a secret ingredient, all blended bubbling in one pot.
The house-made Swiss fondue is enjoyed with crusty baguette bread, cornichons, pickled onions and cos salad.
Diners can personalise the flavour of their fondue dip to suit their tastes by adding Fourme d'Ambert blue cheese, Gorgonzola Dolce blue cheese, truffle or all three to make a lip-smacking cheesy dip.
To savor the warm cheese fondue, there will be an array of mouthwatering dipper options such as kipfler potatoes, spiced meatballs, slow-cooked flat iron steak (served pink), seasonal vegetables (carrot, capsicum, broccoli), grilled portobello mushrooms, pork salami, beer battered chips, potato rosti, prawn cutlets and crusty baguette bread.
To complement the experience, Swiss˘tel Sydney has curated a special beverage menu, which pairs perfectly with the fondue, including Swiss inspired cocktails, Josef Chromy Pinot Noir, Pikes Riesling, Kirin Apple Cider and of course Mulled Wine.
For dessert, Swiss˘tel's chefs have created a decadent blend of Swiss chocolate fondue accompanied by marshmallows, pound cake, strawberries, pineapples, kiwifruit, crushed peanuts and almond flakes.
Kids and of course their parents can dip in churros, waffle sticks, pretzels, mini doughnut balls, ice cream, bananas and strawberries
This was a most successful event last year and it's great to have it back to brighten up our winter.
Fondue is an authentic Swiss culinary tradition, which is best enjoyed with friends and family. The communal notion of the dish, the sharing of food and the gentle chatter and laughter that ensues when friends precariously balance a morsel of food over a seething lava of melted cheese, is a whole lot of laughs.
The Swiss fondue is available at Crossroads Bar in Swiss˘tel Sydney, every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 6pm to 9pm from 30th May to 31st August 2019.
The experience is priced at $34 per person with a minimum of two people per booking.
Accor Plus members can enjoy a complimentary glass of house wine and ten percent discount on the full price.
Advance booking and pre-payment is required. To book, please contact the hotel on 61 (02) 9238 8888 or click on their website below.
