“Recipe name of unknown origin...Where's the burgundy? Burgundy in France? Serve spread with burgundy wine? Am I close? Recipe found on the back package of shallots compliments of Christopher Ranch in Gilroy, California-"Garlic Capital of the World"! Try this spread on French bread! Dee-lite-ful! Try on grilled seafood, poultry, steamed vegetables, in basting sauces, slathered on Oregon slugs, too.”
1 cup
