French Lesson: Daube is a hearty beef stew that is made in the south of France during the winter months. Traditionally, daube is slow-cooked and then refrigerated to mellow the flavors, but this version is quick to the table. If you want to follow tradition, prepare the recipe and cook as directed; let cool, and then set the ceramic insert of the slow cooker in the refrigerator to chill overnight. When ready to reheat, let insert stand at room temperature, and then cover and cook on HIGH setting 1 hour; reduce to LOW setting, and cook 1 hour. Serve it with a crusty baguette.
