Renoir, one of the rare Impressionists with working class origins, stayed true to his roots by serving rustic, family-style dishes for friends and family visiting his home in Montmartre. His home was open for dinner every Saturday when friends would share a pot-au-feu which was cooked on a charcoal-burning stove. Desserts were inspired by Renoir’s friend and pastry chef, Murer, whose patisserie on Boulevard Voltaire Renoir had decorated. Today we’ll recreate Renoir’s pot-au-feu, followed by delicious warm chocolate tarts.
