Winter and melted cheese: they belong together. And the French do a damn good job of making the silkiest, stretchiest hot cheese meals. So, to celebrate Bastille Day (July 14) this year, the Cheese Dome is offering an unashamedly French dining adventure at the Rocks.
As part of Sydney’s Bastille Festival, the experience gives you 90 minutes to consume as much fondue and raclette as humanly possible, inside a re-creation of a traditional French Alps ski resort. A projection of this European winter haven will cover the curved walls of the dome structure, before the light show and audio track change the setting and take you flying above the mountains and inside an igloo.
But diners better be on top of their French trivia: if you accidentally drop a piece of bread into the fondue, someone at your table can ding a big bell and challenge you to a French version of truth-or-dare. They say it’s a fondue tradition. Oh the French.
Did we mention you have to order everything en français? Oh mon Dieu! Luckily all the ordering phrases are written on the menu.
They’re taking lunch and dinner bookings July 12-15 for $69 per person. Happy cheese dreams.
