This definitely company-worthy & easy-to-fix recipe from *French Bistro and Cafe Cooking* by Pierre-Yves Chupin (& the pic) made my eyes grow wide & my mouth water. Per his intro, "The art of simmering is a very important part of bistro cooking. All you have to do is combine all the ingredients, put them in a skillet (or casserole dish) & allow to cook b4 enjoying the rich flavors." Even that part of the recipe won me over. A white Burgundy (Rully or Pouilly-Fuisse) was suggested to accompany this dish. *Enjoy* ! *Edited To Add* In response to reviewer comments, I added the word *whole* to help describe the spice cloves, suggested med-sized shallots & gave options for the onion ingredient. :-)
