Great recipe. Delicious and simple. Visually, it turned out just like in the magazine.

I purchase the haricots from Whole Foods since I wanted everything to turn out perfectly. The shallots turned out golden and sweet. I boiled the beans for a little longer because they were still hard and crunchy after the four minutes. I increased the heat in the shallot pan, toss the beans in in batches and heated on high. I must still have a pound of these beans, at least, in my refrigerator as left overs. They looked like the picture, that is true, but they were tough and chewy. i have made haricots plenty of times, so I don't want to take total blame. Sometimes I think it could be me and not the recipe, esp after others say how wonderful and easy a recipe was. For me, this is not worth trying again. Even the shallots couldn't pull it off.

This was my first try at caramelized shallots, and they were really good. I used regular green beans instead of haricots, and had to boil them for awhile longer. I also subbed apple cider vinegar for the red wine vinegar since that is what I had on hand.
