The classics - adapted....!

Everybody (nearly) knows them, or has heard of them.....the classics.
 Boeuf bourguignonne.......
This article seeks to show that there are many dishes which resemble each other, or can be adapted quite simply. Like the one above, a suggestion would be to use much cheaper wine and call it Bœuf Languedocienne..... maybe a little touch of sugar to take the 'roughness' from the cheaper red wine - why shouldn't one use ox meat with wine and you've got a speciality of my region here - 'Gardienne ....  de taureau'
....the difference is there are olives and local wine in it....
Another classic is the 'Choucroute' - not everybody's favourite because of the pickled cabbage.but pickled in Champagne it is delicious and served with the different meat cuts......well! Again some small changes can be made. A lot of rinsing in cold water can reduce the 'vinegary', and steamed potatoes can be served with the whole thing, reducing the vinegary even more!
Drink an Alsace wine or a German riesling - at the limit Champagne!

Another one.....? How about 'petit salé?'
  here with lentils.
Actually, when I'm in Germany, I love this dish with German style bread

Deutsch: SchlachtplatteDeutsch: Schlachtplatte (Photo credit: Wikipedia)........Schlachtplatte means 'slaughtered dish'not a tempting title, but a delicious meal, particularly in the evening.
Of the thousands of 'classics' one of my favourites is the simple ......'Steak Tartare' complete with all the bits and bobs
Not for everybody I dare say, and only to be eaten in places you trust!
There are so many classics that I will have to ome back again!
Starters,desserts, cheeses and all the rest, but you can make a start here, or - of course - you can just have .........
