We hope to spark food memories in our readers during this month of nostalgia. Boeuf Bourguignon transports me back to my folks’ house; dad’s significantly more impressed with stew for dinner than I am and he finishes his meal by wiping the plate clean with a piece of soft, white bread. Now I am officially a grown up I’m all over stews and my oven hardly goes over 160ºC during winter.
Julia Childs described this dish as “certainly one of the most delicious beef dishes concocted by a man” and she is right, but ladies you don’t need to be a man to cook it. Enjoy.
