My comments:

My hubby surprised me with this delicious fondue on my birthday. He did all the preparation and cooking by himself; it was a lot of work. He was such a sweetie!!

We used beef and chicken because they were on sale, but this would taste just as good with pork or seafood. The flavour of the broth really adds to the taste of the meat. We only used 1/2 of the broth, so we freezed the other 1/2 for another meal.

The dipping sauces were awesome! They were easy to make and great with bread, meat and veggie sticks. The best thing about these recipes is that you can find most of these ingredients in your kitchen and you can adjust the flavour according to your preferene. We like spicy stuff, so we added hot chilli sauces in most of our recipes. We bought the chilli garlic sauce in Chinatown but you can certainly substitute with your favourite hot sauce (or not add any at all).

As for the coleslaw, this was my hubby's creation. I don't normally like coleslaw but I went back for seconds, and thirds and forths... It was that good!!
