French Food Night by Freddy G


This weekend Kate Krimson and I sauntered over to France for this week’s cultural meal. We cooked Beef Bourguignon, a traditional French recipe once considered a peasant dish, and some chocolate soufflés.


Beef Bourguignon consists of braised beef in red wine and is stewed with onions, carrots, and mushrooms. This recipe came from Julia Child's book “Mastering the Art of French Cooking.”
The consensus among all who tasted our dish was that it was delicious. We think it may have been one of the better dishes we've prepared thus far.

It was followed later with a chocolate soufflé. It was served hot and was absolutely gooey and decadent.. This recipe came from food vlogger “BoyEatsWorld” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxccmuSrn3s ).

The entire evening went great and I hope you all give French cuisine a try yourselves. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
