Make on Fresco
Serves 6-8 Prep Time 15 minutes   Cook Time 3 hours   Rated:

If you are a fan of French country cooking, then this surely is on your list. It is complex in flavour despite its simplicity, which really just demonstrates why the French are so good with food. Start with the best quality ingredients you can source. Play French cafe music while you sip the burgundy that is going into the pot and go get your beret on. Bon Appetit. Tres bien.
