August 2014: Winter may have dug in its heels, but why don’t you say “cheese” to that, don your heels, and make your way into the inviting arms of The Nellie. Head down the new Nkanyezi gallery corridor (with the stunningly vibrant works of James Musoke-Lule) and enter into a warm and comforting planetary experience – Chef Rudi’s Cheese Fondue for two.
Available throughout August and September, Rudi’s unique recipe is made with local gruyère, Emmentaler and mature cheddar with a hint of garlic. Your dipping condiments are homemade breads, croûtons, and grissini, as well as radishes, apple, celery, gherkins and other home made pickles – so you could Banting and Atkins to your heart’s content. (But be aware: lose your dip in the fondue, and you will have to pay for the next round of drinks.)
This is the mother of all comfort foods, good old fashioned fun and highly recommended to enjoy in small groups in Planet Restaurant. Rudi’s Cheese Fondue is well priced at R260 for two people.
