La Fondue Chinoise améliorée
This is our take on a classic fondue broth. This recipe is likely to replace the pre-made broths from your grocery cart forever because of the product quality. The most surprising thing is that even by using a wine from your liquor store, your broth will cost you a little less than its commercial counterpart. To take your fondue experience to the next level, we suggest that you ditch frozen slices of beef and use fresh slices of flank steak and dare to combine red meat, fatty fish and seafood for an unbelievable epicurean experience. Ladies and gentlemen, grab your perforated baskets!

    A few tips

    • Contrary to popular belief that cooking wine doesn’t have to be a quality wine, we suggest that you opt for a bottle good enough that you’ll want to taste it on the side. After all, it is the key ingredient in this fondue!
    • Is there any parmesan dip left over after your meal? Use it to make a very tasty egg salad!
