That is something I haven't made. Sounds easy to do also thanks.

To start, honor a drink from the region by making a batch of kir (with white wine from the Aligote grape) or kir royale (champagne).
On starch, I have seen & heard all (potatoes, rice, wide egg noodles) being served. You could pick one you know is a family favorite or, with such a big group, make two or even three so people have a choice.

Alcohol is always a good place to start!

I think egg noodles are required! Maybe Caesar salad? I would keep it simple on yourself since you are serving 20.

We are a big family so cooking for 15+ is the norm. I do like egg noodles, classic and simple

I would make a green salad with a vinaigrette dressing to cut the richness of the stew. I would also skew toward potatoes or rice, which can sit for a bit if the dinner timing is off, or if people want seconds. (My preference would be for potatoes.) Noodles are more difficult to manage, IMO.

Thanks I agree on the salad, that is a must. I like soupcon's idea on potatoes boulangeres. also thinking about domino potatoes.

I love to serve creamy polenta under any long-braised meats. One with lots of cheese, butter and cracked pepper. One of my absolute go to dinner party meals is braised short ribs, creamy polenta and something pickled/acidic as an accompaniment. I made a homemade giardinera with cauliflower, cubanelle peppers, rainbow carrots, and celery once, it cut the fat very nicely.

We eat it with rice normally.

thanks all for the input, the meal was a success, nice vinegary salad, and domino potatoes. I made too much though (as usual), Has anyone froze beef bourguignon ? Does it fall apart when you defrost it?

You should be able to freeze it with great success.

In Burgundy (Bourgogne) most folks serve it with nouilles -- noodles!
