Recipe: Beef Bourguignon

A glorious tradtional dish from France: tender beef braised in red wine and our Glace de Viande with mushrooms, onions, and carrots. Serve it with boiled or mashed potatoes, or a crusty loaf of French bread to soak up all the delicious savory juices.

Recipe: Beef Stroganoff

Succulent chunks of beef and earthy mushrooms in a savory cream sauce highlighted with a dill, this traditional dish makes a rich and satisfying dinner served over egg noodles or rice. It is said to have originated in 19th-century Paris, invented by a French chef for the Russian diplomat, Count Paul Stroganov.

Recipe: Braised Duck Legs with Apples and Ginger

In this perfect dish for autumn, savory duck is slowy braised until it's exquisitely tender, all the while soaking up the delicious flavors of apple, ginger, and Riesling. Serve it over wide noodles or creamy mashed potatoes.

Spicy, fragrant, and silky smooth, green curry sauce is the perfect foil for tender braised fish. Serve it over steamed jasmine rice for a superb dish with the exotic flavors of Thailand.

Recipe: Braised Moroccan Lamb Shanks with Apricot Almond Couscous

Morocco . . . the gateway between Europe and Africa, and a culinary star in her own right. Although Morocco’s culture has been influenced by trade from Europe, the country has still retained her own flavor by using bold, rich spices. Couscous and lamb are staples of Moroccan cuisine, and this recipe adapted from Chef Steve Chiappeti at Viand Restaurant in Chicago incorporates these two essentials into an exotic braised dish.

Recipe: Braised Rabbit and Cherries in Beer

Belgians are famous for cooking with beer. They also use dried fruits, especially cherries and prunes, in stews. This sweet, rich, and satisfying dish is a splendid example of how cherry beer and dried cherries marry with rabbit or other game meats. The final splash of balsamic really makes the tastes sparkle. Serve it over spaetzle or with boiled potatoes.

Recipe: Braised Scrod with Oranges on Fennel Purée

This scrod is elegant and impressive, but simple to make. Orange-scented fish stock with a splash of dry vermouth is spooned over the meaty fillets to braise them. At the same time, the bed of sliced fennel and onions becomes tender enough to purée. The liquid is reduced, orange segments are added, and it’s ready to enjoy. Any mild, thick, firm fish fillet can be substituted.

Recipe: Braised Short Ribs with Mushrooms

Meaty short ribs, braised slowly with mushrooms in red wine and our savory Glace de Viande Gold, make the perfect cold-weather feast. Serve them up with a side of mashed potatoes, some hearty roasted root vegetables, and a glass of your favorite Cabernet.

Recipe: Braised Shoulder of Venison

This is a great basic recipe for enjoying venison shoulder. A slow braise in red wine and our venison stock, with plenty of aromatic vegetables and herbs, yields meltingly tender meat. If you want to change it up, try adding a little minced ginger or some sauteéd mushrooms or even some raisins and a little cinnamon toward the end of cooking time to highlight the complex sweet/savory flavor of the venison. Serve it over mashed potatoes, polenta, rice, or wide buttered noodles.

Recipe: Braised Veal Shanks with Mushrooms

An elegant and hearty dish for a chilly evening, tender veal in a red wine sauce studded with mushrooms will wow your guests. Serve it with fluffy mashed potatoes and a glass of your favorite red wine.

Recipe: Catalan Lamb Chops With Apricots and Sage

These beautifully seasoned, fork-tender shoulder lamb chops are simmered in a heady sauce redolent of vermouth, apricots, sage, tomatoes, and cinnamon. It was inspired by a dish from Spain's Mediterranean coast. The aromatic combination of ingredients harkens back to the Moorish culture that imparted many lush flavors to the international stew pot. Serve the chops on a bed of wide noodles or mashed potatoes.

Recipe: Chicken Curry with Apples

There's nothing as warming and flavorful as a spicy curry dish. This one features tender chicken and tart apples. It's delicious as is with a side of fragrant jasmine rice, or you can offer a selection of tasty garnishes like mango chutney, chopped peanuts or cashews, toasted cocunut flakes, or raisins for a truly festive meal.

Recipe: Chicken Normandy

Normandy is a region in the north of France that borders the English channel. Its rolling hills are home to dairy farms and apple orchards and the region is as famous for butter, cheeses, and cream as it is for apples, cider, and apple brandy. This dish is a Norman classic, combining fall-off-the-bone tender chicken with tart-sweet apples in a luscious, brandy-infused cream sauce.

Recipe: Coq au Vin

A classic dish from the Burgundy region of France, which is known for its outstanding red wines. Serve this luxurious stew with garlic mashed potatoes, a butter lettuce salad, and some fine French cheeses with fruit for your dessert.

Recipe: Drunken Boar

Chunks of wild boar are marinated in gin and vermouth with juniper berries and then braised in a rich broth to make a hearty stew. Sour cream and olives are stirred in at the end to make this soul-satisfying cold-weather dish--serve it with your favorite bold red wine.

Recipe: Duck Ragu

Ragu, a classic Northern Italian dish, is a thick hearty sauce made with red wine, tomatoes, aromatic vegetables, and, most importantly, meat, usually beef and pork. This version is made with flavorful, tender duck legs, a delicious twist that will bring raves from your dinner guests. Serve it ladled over a hearty pasta like pappardelle, or over garlicky mashed potatoes for a terrific chilly-weather meal.

Recipe: Hearty Onion Soup

For an onion soup that lingers in your mind long after the last spoonful is gone, try this creamy blend of caramelized onions that's puréed with Riesling wine and a dash of sherry, along with the robust flavor of Jus de Poulet Lié Gold. Gruyère croutons are a contemporary interpretation of the typical (and often too heavy) cheese topping.

Recipe: New-World Salmon Quiche

There’s nothing old style about this quiche. A flaky cornmeal crust holds a bounty of American harvest: salmon, leeks, bell pepper, and corn. If you have small pieces of left-over salmon, what a way to dress it up! So satisfying and flavorful, simply add a mixed green salad and crusty bread for a great lunch or dinner.

Recipe: Pan-Seared Steaks with Red Wine Butter Sauce

Take it from us: there's nothing more tempting than a luscious steak with a French wine-butter sauce. However, butter sauces often have mounds of butter. We find that if the wine and stock are well reduced, you'll only need about a tablespoon of butter per serving. Because everything counts in this minimalist preparation, choose fine wine, butter, meat, and, of course, demi-glace.

Recipe: Penne with Morels

Do you feel like indulging? This sumptuous pasta dish can be easily prepared by blending our Essence de Champignon Gold with sherry and some cream. We sauté bacon with shallots, add fresh thyme and, once the penne is cooked, stir in the morels. Top with Parmesan cheese. You could use the same sauce over rice or couscous, as well. This recipe is easily doubled or quadrupled.

Recipe: Pork Cassoulet

This classic, rich, slow-simmered dish combines a hearty bean stew with a savory pork and sausage stew, all topped with a crust of bread crumbs drizzled with our Graisse de Canard Gold. Cassoulet is quintessential French country cuisine, a labor of love, so set aside an afternoon to make it and serve it to friends and family warm and fragrant from your oven.
