Beef Bourguignon, Chocolate Mousse, & A Pair Of Birthdays!
It was so cool reviving my February "French Amorè" Menu for this fun private group! Tonight's menu featured Beef Bourguignon, Herbed New Potatoes, Garlic Confit, and a true Chocolate Mousse. After plenty of hugs and warm introductions, we were off!
The first recipe of the night was Garlic Confit - a super simple recipe perfect for dipping crusty bread or even adding to a vinaigrette or marinade.
Next, we started whipping up the chocolate mousse. I love to use Ghirardelli chocolate chips for this particular recipe. The bittersweet and semi-sweet are a winning combination. I had a volunteer separating the eggs!
With the chocolate mousse ready to chill, we started prepping for our main star: Beef Bourguignon. I LOVE this recipe. I thank my aunt and uncle for my love of French cuisine. They taught me the art of French cooking from a Julia Child cookbook when I was a freshman in high school.
Last but not least, we made herbed new potatoes. You'll never want potatoes any other way. Delish!
It's not a true Crème de la Crème class without a gorgeous sunset! Thank you ladies for celebrating your birthdays with me! See you again soon :)
