La Cuisine Bourgeoise


This is a beef bourgignon. It is a pretty simple dish and it belongs in the family repertoire as much as in the Grandes Maisons of time gone by. In theory it is a very simple dish of beef marinated and then braised in red wine with vegetables and garden herbs. In reality this dish is a monument of French Cuisine. It incorporates all the combined skills of the business plus the patience and knowledge a good cook needs. This dish and others like it provide a great training ground to learn most of the skills required to be a good cook.
This simple dish takes 2-3 days to prepare from start to finish including marinating time.

Only in France unfortunately. This is supermarket beef.
