Remember the TV series Under the Dome? It was loosely about a town that woke up one day, and discovered they were trapped under a creepy, impenetrable force-field dome.
Anyway, if the show was called Under the French Cheese Dome, it would be a different story. A happier, more satisfying story, in which the inhabitants’ greatest threat is the food coma.
This. Could. Be. You.
As part of Sydney’s Bastille Festival, a French cheese dome is coming to Circular Quay for four days in July. Inside this 15-metre high hemisphere, you can stuff yourself cheesy with all-you-can-eat fondue and raclette, for 90 minutes. Oh yes, and there’s wine.
They’re going for a French Alps vibe inside the dome. It’ll be a chilly 14°C, and the dome walls will feature 360° projections of the French snow fields, for peak snow-peak times.
Apparently, you have to order in French but fear not. For all the peasants who thought “when will I actually need this?” in their high school French class, there’s a cheat sheet for your sneaky perusal. Get your tickets here.
