This holiday season, transport yourself to the Swiss Alps at Los Angeles’ second annual Après-Ski Dining Experience at the Fairmont Century Plaza. Featuring cozy décor and all of the delicious tidings of an authentic mountain experience, the Fairmont Century Plaza’s five luxuriously custom-built Swiss Chalets offer a one-of-a-kind epicurean moment in the heart of Los Angeles. Enjoy a curated selection of winter cocktails, a delectable three-course menu of mains, starters, and your own fondue set (fondue pot, fondue forks, and yummy treats for dipping in savory cheese and delightful chocolate).
Epicurean Delights at Every Turn
Indulgence takes center stage with a curated selection of winter cocktails that dance on your palate, setting the tone for a culinary journey like no other. Start with a welcome glass of Glühwein (mulled wine), before trying the specialty Egg Nog or Espresso Martini. Sip your libations as you savor a three-course menu, a symphony of mains (Braised beef cheek, Schnitzel or Grilled Trout) and starters (soup or salad) that celebrate the season’s bounty.
The Art of the Fondue Pot
But the true star of the show is your very own fondue set! This decadent centerpiece adds a touch of Alpine magic to your dining experience. Gather around the bubbling fondue pot, and watch in anticipation as the velvety perfection begins to bubble. Your fondue set comes with a baguette, gherkins, baby potatoes, and crisp vegetables, perfect for dipping and devouring. This communal act of dipping and savoring becomes a celebration of connection and joy, and cheesy goodness.
But your Alpine journey does not end there. For dessert, satisfy your sweet tooth with a fondue pot filled with luscious, molten chocolate! Grab your fondue set and get ready to dip strawberries, pineapple, and marshmallows, into the chocolatey abyss. This sensory delight will transcend the ordinary, turning dessert into an event to remember.
