The 'boat-builders' invited us for dinner, Beef Bourguignon cooked as Julia Child would have done,
perfect for a cold winters evening.

Delicious heady aromas greeted us at the door... I see the heavy Larousse gastronomique open on the counter, trying to make a contribution.
The chef was the affable 'French-American', and they had been cooking under his direction since lunchtime- I'm hoping at least one of those three bottles of red destined for the beef went to the cooks.
Cooking tips flowed, as did tales of demented ex lovers, all spiced with a few Clinton jokes...backgammon by the fire and back over the mountain to a heavy sleep on a full belly..
|a very large helping, but we rose to the challenge|
