Dip into a cosy, melty cheese-filled night with fondue for two (or more).

Provided you're not lactose intolerant (or you are, but have your lactase at the ready), chances are that melted cheese is at the top of your winter favourite food list. Well, Swissôtel has something to fulfil your ooey gooey cheese dreams well past the cold weather and into the end of the year.

The alpine-inspired hotel on Market Street is hosting Swiss fondue for two (or more) every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night this winter. The team at Swissôtel has developed a fondue based on traditional recipes featuring emmental and gruyere melted together with white wine and garlic and delivered to your table in a warm pot for $34 per person. Upon request (and for an extra charge), chefs will add other flavours like gorgonzola and truffle to enhance the dip.

Now, cheese connoisseurs will know that the biggest factor to consider with fondue is what bite-sized sides you'll coat with the decadent cheese blend. You'll have your pick of the classics like baguette and vegetables, but Swissôtel is also serving up some next level dip-ins if you're willing to shell out some extra cash: spiced meatballs, salami, potato rosti, prawns and more.

With copious amounts of savoury tastes, you may need something sweet to balance out the night. Swissôtel is also offering a milk chocolate fondue option for $25 with sides like marshmallows, pound cake and strawberries for your dipping pleasure. There's a list of beverages, too — with mulled wine, peach schnapps and calvados to name a few — to pair with your fondue for a flavour-filled evening.

This is a cosy date night or crafty dinner option with mates. We suggest following the tradition where the person that loses their bread in the pot buys the group drinks. Dip responsibly, friends.
