House-made Swiss fondue is back at Swissôtel Sydney
Swissôtel Sydney is back with its traditional, delectable Swiss cheese and chocolate fondue experience this winter and invites everyone to the heart of Sydney’s CBD to enjoy the perfect winter warmer.
Fondue is a delectable Swiss culinary experience and its history dates back to the 18th century. At Crossroads Bar in Swissôtel Sydney, the culinary team has recreated a traditional fondue recipe best enjoyed during the city’s colder months.
The Swissôtel Sydney fondue recipe is a combination of Swiss cheeses – Emmental and Gruyère, Kirsch (a clear fruit brandy), white wine, garlic and a secret ingredient, all blended together and served in one delightful warm pot. The house-made Swiss fondue is best 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, Swissôtel 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 Mulled Wine.
For those with a sweet tooth, Swissôtel’s chefs have created a decadent blend of Swiss chocolate fondue accompanied by marshmallows, pound cake, strawberries, pineapples, kiwifruit, crushed peanuts and almond flakes. It will be exhilarating for both kids and adults to dip churros, waffle sticks, pretzels, mini doughnut balls, ice cream, bananas and strawberries to dip in this irresistible chocolate fondue.
Lorraine Mercuri, General Manager of Swissôtel Sydney said, “The overwhelmingly positive feedback from guests last year encouraged us to bring back the traditional Swiss fondue experience to Swissôtel Sydney this winter. Fondue is an authentic Swiss culinary tradition, which is best enjoyed with friends and family during the colder months, and our culinary team have introduced new fondue dippers to make the experience more exciting for all.”
