      The layers of rich favor that you get from such a short amount of cooking time on this dish are amazing. I served it at a small dinner party (in the winter) and it was a complete hit! I served it French style by having it as the first course and a salad with assorted cheeses to follow the main dish. Very fun party and great dish!

      I made this recently and it was absolutely delicious. Followed the recipe almost to the letter (I used brandy instead of cognac, and fresh onions) and the flavor was deep and rich (be sure to use a good red wine). It's a company worthy dish and the best part is you can make it ahead of time and just heat it up, because it's actually better the next day. Well worth the effort, I promise!
