Supper Club Comfort Food Recipes
Bain and I have been in a supper club of some sort for almost ten years. They have morphed as we all got married, had kids, and lives changed in general. I always look forward to the evening and was excited to be able to host the fun group this past weekend. The hardest part of supper club is what to have for dinner. Will it be take out? Will I cook something? Depends on the week.
This week it has been ridiculously cold and so I decided to cook. I felt warmer just thinking about it. I started to ask for suggestions and got some great ones including the idea of Chicken Curry. I almost did it too except I had a friend with an allergy that precluded me from it. So I went to my bookshelves and started to scour though my cookbooks.
I love a good cookbook with fantastic pictures to let me know I’m on the right path, a great story, and meaningful definitions. I can get lost in a good one. That is what happened to me Tuesday afternoon. I reopened one of my favorites, Alex Hitz‘s My Beverly Hills Kitchen, and started to re read some amazing recipes and his captivating stories. I have had the pleasure to meet him and will have to write a post on just that experience because he was beyond lovely.
Back to finding a recipe, I stumbled upon his “Beef Bourguignon.” It sounded warm and delicious. Alex’s version is a little bit different than traditional bourguignon. He has added fresh basil, parmesan, and dijon mustard. Think of it as a deliciously rich stew.
Plus it looked like something I could make on Friday when the party was on Saturday. PERFECT!! I love a theme so with the “Beef Bourguignon” came my theme of comfort foods. I was so excited to get started.
