Pot-Au-Feu

pot-au-feu-1

A few years ago, my husband and I were strolling on La Place des Vosges in Paris. At the outdoor terrace of one of those lovely restaurants sheltered under the arcades, there was a middle adged couple seated in front of their meal: a pot-au-feu, beautifully presented in a red Le Creuset pot. She was pouring the broth, he was pouring the wine. Their eyes and smiles were serenely fastened on each other, their glasses clinking. A perfect moment, for them as well as for those who encountered them. I had always known pot- au-feu as a family dish. Now I considered it with renewed respect: It may well be lovers’ food. OK, older lovers’ food, but that’s my team, so don’t knock it!

Literally, “pot-au-feu” means pot on the fire, to illustrate the fact that the whole meal cooks unhurriedly in one pot, filling the house with its heavenly aromas. The traditional serving ritual which surrounds the serving of the pot-au-feu is sure to be as satisfying as the taste of the finished dish. This is also a perfect crockpot recipe. For those of you avoiding beef, simply replace it with turkey parts (thighs, wings and necks), and add salt to taste, 2 cups red wine, and 1/4 cup olive oil to the pot.
