The weather is perfectly suited for comfort food. For something ooey and gooey and wondrously warm. Lucky for you the President Hotel is serving just this. The Swiss originated indulgence, fondue, has taken centre stage this winter at hotel nestled in between Signal Hill and the pristine Bantry Bay beaches.

Guests are invited to take up this winter time tradition of sharing at the most loved destination hotel by tucking into a rich, hearty pot of classic Swiss cheese made for two – an experience best enjoyed with loved ones and friends. It is a sharing experience, so roll up your cuffs and quite literally dig in.

The President’s executive chef, Jacques Swart, has put a gourmet twist on the 1970’s style crudité with a variety of fresh, farm to table ingredients with which diners can swirl, dip and delight in. Menu items include skewers of garlic and herb toasted bread, steamed tenderstem broccoli, lightly poached granny smith apple, hickory smoked chicken and a further selection of fruit and vegetables.

The perfect additives are the dukkha spice, celery salt, basil panko crumbs and black bean mayonnaise which enhance each bite, as well as the option of adding extra meat such as locally sourced pork belly, sirloin steaks and swordfish.

It makes for the perfect date night or a catch up with friends.

Guests can celebrate their cherishment of cheese with this new winter-warmer special for only R365 per pot. The warming fondue, offered daily, is ideal as a rendezvous for lunch, afternoon tea, or a fun night out with friends, and can be ordered as either a starter or a main.

The President’s fondue is valid until September 15, and must be booked 24hrs in advance.
