Fall Feels Warm and Cozy

Breville Sous Chef Food ProcessorFall is officially here (although the feeling of Fall has been in the air throughout some of the summer) and we are sensing that stews, soups, sauces and other comfort foods are going to return to your household’s weekly meals.

Have you cooked a stew in a quality cast iron cocotte? There’s no other pot quite like it when you want to slow cook a Boeuf Bourguignon topped with soft dumplings. The Staub cocottes are unique in that they have continuous self-basting spikes under the lid to give your dish exceptional flavour and texture. They are made in France and available in a variety of sizes and colours. See our ad in this season’s “In The Hills” magazine, to view the new rich Cinnamon colour.

Also in time for the Fall array of cooking and feasting is a special 200th Anniversary edition of a Wüsthof forged carbon steel knife set. These are crafted using old world methods and feature beautiful rosewood handles. Sale price for October $275.00 (Regular $400.00) Happy 200th Anniversary, Wüsthof!

From the Kitchen to the TableBoeuf Bourguignon

  • 1 kg chuck beef, cubed
  • 5 slices bacon diced
  • 12 small onions, peeled
  • cup butter
  • 2 cups carrots chopped
  • 1 sprig of thyme
  • 1/4 bay leaf
  • 2 sticks of celery trimmed
  • 4 sprigs of parsley
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 Litre red wine
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • salt, pepper

Remove the meat from the refrigerator at least 1.5 hours before searing.
Melt the butter in a Cocotte, add the onions and bacon, brown slightly stirring with a wooden spoon for 2 - 3 minutes. Season the meat with salt and pepper and sear. After searing is done add carrots to the meat. Make your bouquet garni of thyme, bay leaf, celery and parsley. Add garni to the pot. Steam for 30 minutes, then remove the meat and keep it warm. Now add the flour to the pan and stir well with a wooden spoon. When the flour is slightly browned, stir in the tomato paste. Gradually add the red wine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add garlic cloves.
Stir continuously with the wooden spoon. As soon as the sauce is smooth, add the meat back into the cocotte. Then simmer in a covered pan for about 2.5 hours on a low heat. Remove your bouquet garni. Tastes delicious with salted potatoes. Recipe credit to "BOCUSE in your kitchen", published by Flammarion. Method has been edited. 25 minutes before done time make the dumplings and add them to the stew.


  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp parsley
  • 2 tsp baking powder
