As the dark nights draw in, the slow cooker and ‘one-pot’ pans are put to work in my kitchen. The season for comfort food is upon us. The classic French dish of Boeuf Bourguignon made with good quality beef, bacon, a deep red wine and rich gravy is the ultimate winter warming supper.
A little while ago I joined Marco Pierre White in his kitchen with the Knorr UK team, to learn a few tricks for cooking one-pot meals such as a sweet pumpkin soup, a Parmesan-laced risotto and a quick chicken casserole.
This week, I’ll be trying out Marco’s recipe for Boeuf Bourguignon with Wild Mushrooms (you can see a video here) using seasonal ingredients from Forman and Field.
Beef Bourguignon is also sometimes known as Beef Burgundy, because it originates form the French region of Burgundy or Bourgogne. Julia Child famously described the dish as “certainly one of the most delicious beef dishes concocted by man.”
To test Julia Child’s theory alongside Marco Pierre White’s recipe, I have a second box of ingredients to offer one lucky reader.
The contents of the winner’s box will include:
- 800g beef brisket
- 200g pearl onions
- 200g wild mushrooms
- unsmoked bacon
- 125ml port
- leek and celery
- thyme and parsley
- Bolney Estate Lychgate Red Wine
- Knorr Rich Beef Stock Pot
Please note, you will have to be in to sign for your parcel containing fresh ingredients on Friday 16th November – UK delivery only.
