This week's word is from page 20 of The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Burbery.
pot-au-feu is a French term which translates to English as "pot on the fire." It is a French beef stew.
Here is a recipe: Classic Pot-au-fue. It can also be made with chicken or seafood. There are French restaurants named Pot-au-feu in various US cities, such as Providence, RI and El Paso, TX.
My sentence: In America, or at least in my childhood home, pot-au-feu was called boiled dinner, which sounds boring but was quite good, especially as made by my mom.
