And while she read her cards and muttered to herself, I would leaf through my collection of cookery cards, incanting the names of never-tasted dished like mantras, like the secret formulae of eternal life. Bouef en daube. Champignons farcis à la grècque. Escalopes à la Reine. Crème Caramel. Schokoladentorte. Tiramisu.

-Chocolat, Joanne Harris

Dish up this easy Boeuf en Daube recipe from the book Chocolat on a cold day to feel warmed and full.

When the winter rain taps its fingers impatiently at the window, this is the dish I make. I snuggle curled under a blanket and stare into a daydream while the boeuf en daube simmers away. While it’s certainly not winter here, I’m sure the snow is falling in place of rain for someone in the Northern Hemisphere. For such a fancy name, it’s an incredibly easy dish to make and I’m sure will make your winter afternoon perfect.
