  • About

This is a Provençal variation of a pot roast of beef, with a calf’s foot to add body and strength to the poaching sauce, while a blend of mountain herbs and a dash of Armagnac brandy supply the aromatic flavorings. Surprisingly for Provence, there is no garlic! (menu and wine suggestions.)
