Fondue Bourguignonne (Burgundy Fondue)

This recipe originates from Burgundy, where not only is the wine good (hence the famous bœuf bourguignon), but the meat is also delicious. Try to buy the best-quality meat you can. This recipe also relies on good sauces. You should serve at least three on the table: Béarnaise, mayonnaise, and hollandaise are the most classic.
