Brace for winter with the return of cheese fondue


With winter comes the best possible excuse for comfort food, and Swissôtel Sydney in the CBD is here to warm the cockles of the city with the launch of their annual fondue experience that fulfils all of your melted cheese dreams.

For $34 per person, you and a mate can get around a hot bowl of melted gruyere and Emmental (that's the holey cheese), served with bites of crusty bread, pickles, and cos salad with bacon, herb croutons and creamy parmesan dressing.  If you're feeling extra peckish you can add extras like meatballs, roast potatoes, steak, salami, vegetables or beer battered chips. You can also pimp your pot with extra fourme d’Ambert blue cheese, gorgonzola, or truffle.

If you've got more of a sweet tooth, opt for the chocolate fondue, which is $25 per person. You'll get a whole pot of melted milk chocolate, served with marshmallows, pound cake, strawberries, pineapple, kiwi, crushed peanuts and almond flakes. 

Both fondue sets are available from May 30 until September 28 for groups of two or more, Thursday to Saturday from 6-9pm. This is definitely one that you need to book in advance.
