Chilly, gray days make us long for warm, comforting dinners, like this one featuring a rustic yet refined beef stew and a bowl of dill-flecked homemade noodles.
Pair this unique and simple hors d'oeuvre with a glass of Riesling or Gewürztraminer.
Any recipe that begins with rendered duck fat is guaranteed to be good. (Rest assured, you can use canola oil instead.) This rich beef stew from David Bouley takes a bit of time to prepare, but every second will be well worth it.
A hint of mustard adds just the right amount of bite to this insanely good side.
