Recipe of the day – Raymond Blanc’s Boeuf Bourguignon

This one isn’t kid’s play – but oh boy it’s worth the preparation and marinading!  It’s fabulous!  I did halve the amount of meat for 4 and added more vegetables!  The meat was SO tender and amazingly tasty!


Browning the meat and the vegetables….


I was really dubious about toasting the flour in the oven and adding it to the reduced wine to make a lump free sauce!  It was AMAZING and worked perfectly!  I’ll definitely try it again (even though it smelled vile!  Don’t be put off!)



The end result – served with garlic mash!  Five stars out of five!



About weheartcards Esther Warner started designing cards several years ago, then in 2003 she returned to University as a mature student, completing an IT degree. Since then she has developed her passion for paper and creativity by computerised card-making. In the corporate world she was awarded ‘Worcestershire Businesswoman of the Year’ in 2005 Esther says, “When was little I loved getting post. The excitement of getting a letter or something delivered to my door when it WASN’T my birthday or Christmas was really exciting. Wondering who had sent it and what it could be…. The anticipation of opening the envelope to discover what was inside was thrilling! ” In later years Esther was very homesick at boarding school and the daily post distribution became the most exciting part of the day. Each card from we♥cards is filled with love and made for the recipient personally, Esther hopes that they convey the excitement she felt when she was small and received a letter from her Grandma!
