In search of the perfect Bouef Bourgignon

Gentle reader,

I am off to Burgundy in a mere matter of hours in order to get to know the "terroir" behind this classic French dish. I assure you that I will spare no effort in my attempts to perfect this dish. No bottle of cheap red in the whole of Burgundy will be safe, no doe-eyed Charollais cow will sleep soundly at night. Mushrooms will  quake in fear and onions come out in a cold sweat, lest they be chosen.

Yes, in other words, I'm off on my hols to France and, since there's a slow cooker in the house we're going to, I suspect there'll be many a posting when I get back.

For now though, au revoir and happy slow cooking!

  1. Hi Ms Blighty, Did you ever find the perfect bouef bourgignon? I'm looking for a slow cooker diced beef recipe and would be interested to know how you got on. Have just found your blog off the british mummy bloggers site. I love my slow cooker too - couldn't survive without it with a toddler and a baby. Can't wait to try out some of your recipes!

  2. Yes, I did!
    It's here!

    Hope you like it!

  3. Great, I can't wait to try it! Thank you.
