I'm having a 10-person dinner party soon and to save effort, etc, I'm making a basic boueuf bourguignon that I've made before and that I know is failproof. The problem: I have no idea what else to serve. Is good bread + a simple salad enough? Should there be something else?
Relatedly, and I know I'm an idiot for not really knowing the answer here, do you suggest serving the stew in bowls or plates? If I do bowls, should I do the salad (or whatever the side is) as a separate course?
