The Melting Pot Celebrates National Cheese Fondue Day with World Champion Cheese

The Melting Pot Restaurants, Inc., the world’s premier fondue restaurant, is celebrating National Cheese Fondue Day by offering guests the taste of victory with the fondue debut of the 2016 World Champion Roth® Grand Cru® Surchoix cheese. On April 11, The Melting Pot will offer its limited edition World Champion Cheese Fondue, a blend of the nine-month aged World Champion Roth Grand Cru Surchoix alpine cheese, white wine, shallots, Dijon mustard and scallions, for only $4.11. Fondue lovers are encouraged to celebrate their cherishment of cheddar, fascination with fontina, or glorification of Gruyere at their local Melting Pot to celebrate National Cheese Fondue Day.

“With cheese consumption on the rise in the U.S., more and more consumers are experiencing and enjoying fondue every year, and National Cheese Fondue Day is the perfect day to celebrate our love of cheese,” said Mike Lester, president of The Melting Pot Restaurants, Inc. “At The Melting Pot, we always strive to offer our guests the best of everything, and that includes the high quality, exceptional food that we serve. Together with our partners at Emmi Roth USA, we are taking our National Cheese Fondue Day celebration to another level by offering, for a limited-time, our World Champion Cheese Fondue, melted with the 2016 World Champion Cheese, Roth Grand Cru Surchoix.”

Perfect for the cheese aficionados of the world, the Grand Cru Surchoix is a mellow alpine cheese aged for nine months and winner of the 2016 World Championship Cheese Contest. The first American cheese maker to win the award in almost 30 years, Emmi Roth USA combined the finest milk from family farms in southern Wisconsin and crafted the award-winning cheese in authentic copper vats. The careful crafting brings out light floral notes, nutty undertones, a hint of fruitiness and a full-flavored finish.

In addition to the World Champion Cheese Fondue, The Melting Pot is bringing back customer-favorite, award-winning beverages and a special four-course menu. The award-winning spring beverages are crafted and specially selected to accompany the spring menu. Beverages include Saloon Sour, Summertime Sipper, Lively Lemon Shandy, Mezzacorona Pinot Grigio and Belle Ambiance Pinot Noir. The four-course menu includes the World Champion Cheese Fondue, a house salad, Classic Entrée and Flaming Turtle chocolate fondue. The Melting Pot’s communal fondue dining experience allows for up to four individual portions of cheese fondue to be shared in one fondue pot. Each cheese fondue is served with artisan bread and seasonal vegetables for dipping.
