TAKE ME TO THE ALPS — FONDETTE FONDUE

TAKE ME TO THE ALPS — FONDETTE FONDUE

When you step inside Fondette’s pop-up in Mitte, you immediately feel immersed in alpine magic — no slopes in sight. The space perfectly embodies that ‘après ski’ feeling and inevitably leaves you all warm and tingly inside, from the wafting scent of cheese to the vintage skis and don’t forget the dulcet Swiss tones coming through the speakers. Begin with a tipple – Nüsslisalat anyone? — then make your way to the main events: three choices of cheese fondue and hearty slices of raclette melted to cheesy bubbles on a coupelle grill. The champagne fondue is near perfection, but perhaps a bit of truffle on top wouldn’t be a bad idea… With traditional Swiss sides of overflowing baskets of bread and chunks of juicy pear (for the fondue) and mini pickled onions and cornichons (for the raclette), you’ll have plenty of perfect accompaniments to whichever gooey cheese you desire. Dip your bread in kirsch liqueur beforehand for a true taste of the Alps. Grab a group or dine with a partner and have a night that will leave you singing Yodel-Ay-Hee-Hoo all the way home.
