TAMPA, Fla., Oct. 10, 2011 // PRNewswire // -- The Melting Pot Restaurants, Inc. (http://www.meltingpot.com), the premier fondue restaurant franchise, is taking fondue fans on a flavorful, patriotic road trip with a new Big Night Out America limited-time feature four-course menu that began rolling out system-wide on Oct. 10 and will be available in all locations by Oct. 21.
"With the Big Night Out America, I set out to take guests on a culinary journey through some of America's most distinctly flavorful regions," said Shane Schaibly, corporate chef of Front Burner Brands, restaurant management company for The Melting Pot Restaurants, Inc. "The menu infuses authentic American flavors into fondue for a dining experience inspired by the melting pot that is America."
Making a stop in Boston, the first course features an original American beer with Boston Lager Cheddar Cheese Fondue. In this course, Samuel Adams Boston Lager ® and cheddar and emmenthaler cheeses are accented with Nueske's applewood smoked bacon, onion, Dijon mustard, Tabasco® and scallions.
Next, the road trip heads to the Midwest for the Wisconsin Wedge Salad, an iceberg wedge accompanied by Roma tomato slices, Emmi Roth USA gorgonzola, Nueske's applewood smoked bacon and peppercorn ranch dressing.
The entree course features fresh meats, seafood and pasta with influences from various regions like the Chesapeake Bay with Old Bay® shrimp. Other highlights include Buffalo chicken, Memphis-style barbecue pork tenderloin, seasoned black Angus sirloin and wild mushroom sacchetti pasta.
For dessert, Chef Shane concludes the tour of America with a take on the timeless American classic peanut butter and jelly known as Chocolate Wildberry Crunch Fondue. This version of the childhood favorite combines milk chocolate, crunchy peanut butter and a puree of blackberries, raspberries and strawberries.
