Hoveton: Fizz and Fromage launches Christmas Dinner Fondue

It’s a match made in heaven between two holiday classics: après ski cheese fondue and a traditional holiday turkey dinner.

The Fizz and Fromage restaurant in Hoveton, near Wroxham, will serve up big bubbling pots of cheese fondue served with cubes of turkey, pigs in blankets, Maris Piper roast potatoes, buttered roasted sprouts and sourdough bread chunks for dipping .

Eastern Daily Press:

Served as part of a new Christmas menu starting December 1 through Christmas Eve Tuesday through Saturday, the fondue is made from a special blend of four-year-old Gouda, Comte and Emmenthal.

Other tasty options to choose from on the Christmas menu, which is £23.95 for two courses and £29.50 for three, include starters of Gin and Bramble Cured Salmon, Cobble Lane Coppa Ham with Cropwell Bishop Shropshire Blue or a Cheese Scone of goat and desserts of Spiced clementine tart with dark chocolate sauce, tiramisu or cheese board.

And if you prefer fon-don’t to fondue, you can choose from two other options for your main course, including Bungay’s Baron Bigod and leek and duck confit tartiflette, for example with buttered sprouted broccoli , Christmas plum and cinnamon jam.

You can even gild the lily with the famous Festive Fizz Tree, 12 glasses of Prosecco, Flint Rose, Champagne or Westwell Pelegrim perched on your very own Christmas tree, at prices starting at £50.

Fizz and Fromage chef Pete Chapman said the idea for the festive fondue came about after a discussion with the restaurant’s owner, Tim Ridley.

“Fondue is one of the best sellers on our menu, so when Christmas came around, we couldn’t resist the idea of ​​offering a traditional dinner with a big difference,” he said.

Eastern Daily Press:

“People have loved the idea! We serve fondue all year long, but there’s something really special about getting together with the people you love at Christmas and sharing food.”

The Hoveton restaurant recently began attending local farmer’s markets to sell cheese and will also be hosting an “open house” on December 18 where customers can pick up cheese orders or come and taste before buying their holiday cheese.

Other unusual twists on traditional holiday food can be found in Norfolk at The Grosvenor Fish Bar, where a fried Christmas dinner is on the menu that includes turkey sausage, French fries, battered stuffing balls, gravy and cranberry sauce.

Drifters Fish and Chips in Fakenham have also brought back their popular battered pork in a foot-long blanket alongside battered stuffed balls and mince pie shakes.
