‘From the source’ boeuf bourguignon

Legendary American cook Julia Child described boeuf bourguignon as: ‘Certainly one of the most delicious beef dishes concocted.’ The recipe uses two of Burgundy’s most prized ingredients, beef and red wine, but techniques to create the hearty stew vary throughout the region, as chef Cécile Riotte explains in Lonely Planets new book From the Source-France.
