There’s beef stew, and then there’s boeuf bourguignon.

There’s a reason it deserves the French pronunciation, and why it’s the dish that made Julia Child famous. Boeuf bourguignon is to beef stew as opera is to the accordion, as Molière is to Jerry Lewis (though the French like both). When prepared properly – as it always should be - boeuf bourguignon is a symphony in the mouth, a perfect harmony of flavor, texture and filling nourishment.

When Thomas Jefferson visited Paris, he was so impressed with the macaroni gratin that he brought back a machine for making his own pasta.

He is even known to have served a “macaroni pie” at a White house state dinner in 1802. Like many Yankee Doodle dishes, this one owes a lot to its French origins. It is no coincidence that July 14, the date of France’s biggest national holiday, is also officially Macaroni and Cheese day in the U.S.

Fall is here, and that means apples are in season all over the U.S. and Europe.

What to do with your surplus? Most of humanity agrees that there are few things better on a chilly fall day than a warm apple pastry, baked in a rich sugar-butter glaze into tender, melt-in-your-mouth deliciousness. As an alternative to the traditional apple pie, try making a traditional French tart with apples instead.
