I went to a meat fondue this weekend. Having never attended one before I was expectin a giant bowl of molten liquified beef which people could dunk assorted food stuffs in (babybel cheese coated in cow goo anyone?, what about a carrot?).
The actual event was rather more prosaic but did involve a hot bubbly cauldron of oil (just add booze for insta-danger) which we could dip hunks of beef into. There was salad as well to provide a buffer between bouts of the bovine onslaught (Nice use of alliteration huh?). Thankfully no one was injured even when we started washing down the meat with red wine.
