Yum, champagne and berries do go together so well! And it’s never too early to plan for Xmas! I’m one of those annoying people who is finished shopping by October! I have a few good-looking recipes for Beef Bourginogne (OK, now I know why you did it in English…how the heck do you spell that?!!), but I haven’t tried them myself yet. If no one gives you a tried and true favorite, I can send you along my sister-in-laws. I might look up that Julie/Julia thread and see if she makes Julia’s recipe.
