Here's a bistro classic:



Chicken With 40 Cloves of Garlic

8 pieces of chicken, bone in and skin on. (Traditionally a whole cut up chicken is used but I like to use just thighs as they have a great flavor and all the serving portions come out the same).
2 tbsp butter
olive oil
4 tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped
salt and pepper
1 cup flour
40 cloves garlic, about 3 bulbs, peeled
1 cup cognac
4 cups chicken stock
1/2 cup heavy cream

Rinse and dry the chicken, season with salt, pepper and rosemary and dredge in the flour. Heat the butter with a little olive oil in a large skillet to high. Add the chicken and brown on both sides. Remove the chicken to a plate, lower heat to med. high and saute the garlic until brown. De-glaze the pan with the cognac, add the chicken stock and the chicken, cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Remove the chicken to a warm plate. Turn the heat up to high and reduce the remaining liquid by 2/3. Carefully puree the remaining garlic and liquid, stir in the cream, adjust the seasonings to taste and serve sauce over the chicken.

I like to serve this with a porcini mushroom risotto.

This was our Thanksgiving from the thread I made, should have put in here to begin with:

Quote:
This one's for Rufus.

Anyone else have pics of the festivities? Today's menu was as follows:

1st course - Bottle of red, ripened French cheese, aged Gouda, home made cran sauce and a baguette.

2nd course - Crispy roasted goose! Home made corn bread, roasted yams, roasted carrots/celery, home made cranberry sauce, and corn bread-chestnut-apple-cherry-onion-sage stuffing.

3rd - Figgy pudding bitches!

I got Victorian on that ass. The goose was off the chain.

very nice pics you three. Nothing too fancy as of late.

Last night I made some seared lamb shoulder steaks rubbed seasoned with tumeric and ground mustard, served with pearled couscous cooked in chicken stock and butter and finished with camembert and a side salad of napa cabbage with toasted sesame seeds, shitake mushrooms and dressed with sesame oil/rice vinegar. A bit all over the place, but enjoyed nonetheless.

Sorry no pics.


Also, you fools should check out my friend paul on his show Hairy Bikers. Basically combines harvesting/hunting of regional traditional foods with some cooking elements.In s carolina its gold rice and gigging flounder. Tell me what you think.

Here's a meal I made a few months ago.

Got these nice prawns


Stuffed them with chutney, citrus zest and coconut. Then marinated in canola oil, orange juice, soy sauce, and ginger.


Onto the grill


Served with fresh corn, heirloom tomatoes and homemade mozzarella.
