If you do not have Chef Ian Bergh’s Café de Paris sauce recipe to smother your steak in, your favourite piece of beef is seriously missing out. There are thousands of versions of this secret recipe, but Ian gladly shares his version which often gets served from his kitchen at De Grendel Restaurant in Cape Town. This is a classic recipe that will make any steak sing.
Elgin Vintners’ National Sales Manager, Donnie Claassen, is a real braai master and every month he will be creating a delicious recipe, cooked on an open fire, to pair with one of the Elgin Vintners wines. Although this is a traditional French recipe well known to be mastered and perfected by Julia Child, it is, in essence, a hearty and simple one-pot dish that is slow-cooked and served with mashed potatoes – extraordinary delicious comfort food at its best. Make sure to have enough Elgin Vintners Merlot in your wine selection as you’ll need some for the pot as well as the glass!
