Cheese fondue for two (or more) at Swissôtel Sydney
A traditional and delectable Swiss Emmental & Gruyere cheese fondue experience is available this June in Sydney’s CBD
Swissôtel Sydney invites guests, locals and visitors to the heart of Sydney’s CBD to enjoy the perfect winter warmer – a traditional Swiss cheese fondue.
Fondue is a delectable Swiss culinary experience and the history of fondue dates back to the 18th century. The team at Swissôtel Sydney has recreated a traditional fondue recipe for Sydneysiders and guests to enjoy during the city’s colder months.
Swissôtel Sydney’s fondue recipe is a combination of Swiss cheeses including Emmental (a yellow, medium-hard, savoury and mild tasting cheese) and Gruyere (a traditional, creamy, unpasteurised, semi-soft cheese), Kirsch (a clear, colourless fruit brandy), white wine and garlic, all blended together and served in one deliciously warm pot.
The chefs at Swissôtel Sydney can also adapt the flavour to suit guests’ preferences by adding Fourme d’Ambert blue cheese, Gorgonzola Dolce blue cheese or truffle on request…or all three!
The fondue is served with traditional crusty baguette bread, pickled onions and a farmer’s garden salad. Other delicious dip-able additions to choose from include spiced meatballs, ‘mac and cheese’ croquettes, potato rostis, beer battered chips, seasonal vegetables, mushrooms, cured speck, pork salami, and even nashi pear.
To complement the experience, Swissôtel Sydney has also curated a unique beverage menu which pairs perfectly with the fondue. Their selection includes Kirsch, mulled wine, peach schnapps, calvados and apple schnapps. Guests are forewarned… fondue tradition dictates that if a person loses their bread in the fondue pot they owe the group a round of drinks!
Ross Buchanan, General Manager Swissôtel Sydney says, “We have been working on this concept for months now and we are absolutely thrilled to finally launch it in time for winter. Fondue is an authentic Swiss culinary tradition which is perfect to enjoy with friends when the weather turns cold. The team and I are excited to share this unique experience which ties into the history of the Swissôtel brand, with Sydneysiders and guests to the city.”
The Swiss cheese fondue experience is now available at Swissôtel Sydney, located right in the heart of Sydney’s CBD. The experience is priced from $29 per person with a minimum of two people per booking.
