Beef Bourguignon

Crab with Wild Rice and Sun Dried Tomatoes
There’s one thing that still makes us home-sick after all these years. Crabs. We grew up on the Chesapeake Bay, and summer was crabs. We caught them by the bushel. Chicken-neckin’, we called it. So we have a natural soft spot for this combination
Duck Breast with a Quince Paste Sauce
The magret is the breast of a duck that has been fattened to make foie gras. It is dark, rich meat without being gamey. Since foie gras production has been ‘democratized’ in France (meaning that a lot more farmers have gone into foie gras production because it
Fish and Shellfish Marmite
Even here in land-locked Burgundy we have a craving for the sea from time to time. Here is a convivial seafood stew to gather round and pick. The most important aspect of this recipe is adding the fish
Flank Steak with Epoisses Sauce
Epoisses, the cheese, is produced in our local town…Epoisses! People who live around here will tell you unequivocally that there is no better cheese on earth than ‘their’ Epoisses. And we heartily agree. It has one weakness though: it doesn’t travel well.
Hake and Mussels in a Garlic and Parsley Broth
The ‘beurre d’escargots’ is the garlic and parsley butter that we serve our snails with in Burgundy. No snails here, though! Use any white-fleshed fish for this dish. I like hake; but you will find different fish where you are than I get here.
Marinated Sirloin Beef Salad with Anchovy Dressing
This beef salad has a tang from red wine vinegar and anchovy, and spicy character from cinnamon and nutmeg. A twist on traditional salsa verde!
Monkfish, Oven-Roasted Tomatoes, Green Olive Tapenade
This dish has all those popular Provencal flavors. What’s more, it’s a really striking presentation. We make it here at home in Burgundy when garden tomatoes are ripe and flavorful.
Mussel Bouillon with Saffron, Chervil and a Crush of Butternut Squash
Here in France we’re lucky to have the small, sweet bouchot mussels from the Normandy coast. Highly-prized and plentiful, no other Atlantic mussel is quite so fine.
Pike-Perch with Black Trumpet Mushrooms and Artichoke Sauce
Sandre is arguably the finest of the fresh water fishes. It got its English name (though the English themselves also call it ‘zander’) because it looks like a perch and hunts like a pike. It also has the blue-white
Roasted Turbot, Warm Seasonal Salad, Split Caper
Fresh Turbot, roasted on the bone, warmed salad of seasonal vegetables with split capers and zucchini flowers. This rich summer dish is all about the best possible ingredients available and cooking them simply.
Sauté of Cuttlefish with Black Rice and a Parsley Vinaigrette
The wildly popular black riso venere is a modern hybrid rice from the Piedmont region of Italy. It is a cross between asiatic rices, grassy and pungent. Look for rice labeled integrale
Slow Roasted Bresse Chicken
The world famous 'Poulet de Bresse' comes from a region very close to Domaine de Cromey. This is a perfect recipe for the family holidays, perfectly adaptable to use with a good quality local chicken or turkey.
Squid and Zucchini Gratin
Zucchini is in at the moment. And in a couple of weeks we’ll have more than we can handle. So we are always looking for an interesting way to bring the freshness of the garden to a prepared dish.
Venetian Pea Risotto
In the Veneto, risotto tends to be looser and juicier, usually based on fish or shellfish. The rice of choice is vialone nano, a shortish-grained semifino appreciated for its soft texture and great absorption. Good quality vialone nano will triple in size when cooked,
Wild Boar in Red Wine with a Burgundian Potato Galette
We’ve lit the wood burner, unlocked the cellar door, and are ready for that first taste of the changing season. Let the autumn begin! Here is a recipe to put you in the mood, should one of your hunter friends drop a hunk of game on your doorstep.
Wild French Squab, Pan-Seared Breast and Pie
Enjoy the unique recipe from the kitchen of Domaine de Cromey, the home of Elden Selections in the heart of Burgundy France. It is winter and one of our hunting friends gave us some wild squab.
