We can only agree that winter is still upon us, and comfort food may still be our first choice for dinner. I propose to you one of my favourite comfort food, a stew, but with a twist.
First, it is made with Game meat, deep red wine, lardons and Foie Gras, to give a smooth texture and rich flavours, then covered with a crust to keep all of those flavours locked inside.
You can serve this fantastic dish with sautéed wild mushrooms and roasted chestnuts, some steamed Fine French beans, and mash (sweet) potato – and the left over wine.
