Day 8: Where's the Bouef?
The traditional stew beef bourguignon is what comes to my mind when I think french food.
It's nothing fancy, just chunks of ordinary stewing beef, cooked in good red wine with tomatoes, onions, carrots. Also served with boiled potatoes or sometimes, a side order of rice.
I like eating this stew with chunks of a crusty baguette, the better to sop up the very flavorful sauce with!
I had beef bourguignon at a small but very crowded cafe in Montmartre called Templier.
It was the plat du jour and cost only 10.8 Euros for a hearty and filling bowl!
