2. When was it first made?

Though it is considered a 'traditional' French dish, beef bourguignon wasn't first recorded as a recipe until the 19th century. The recipe wasn't considered a specialty until well into the 20th century though now it is a standard in French restaurants, particularly in Paris. Julia Child felt the dish was one of the most delicious beef dishes ever created!
