I made a french main course for dinner tonight. It is from my recently acquired cookbook title simple The Food of France - A journey for food lovers. I love this book, infact better than my Le Cordon Bleu cookbook. The photos are simply amazing, the recipes doable and inviting and here´s what I chose with the chicken meat I picked up earlier. Its Poulet Chasseur, a stew dish with butter, white wine, brandy, tarragon, tomato puree, shallots and mushroom ... and we both LOVEEE it! I love it so much I think this dish beats the overated Coq Au Vin hands down, seriously!
I serve them with another classic french side dish of Carottes de Vichy. Its a simple carrot side dish, and again, the french knows how to make them tasty. Here´s the trick. Put a cup of cold water in a pot (must be a pot), throw the sliced carrots in together with salt, pepper, sugar and butter and let it cook until all the liquid evaporates. Garnish them with lots of parsley. Thats it but tasted so fantastic!
Thats it! I will swap my Fusion Wednesday to French Wednesday seeing I love french food so much! :-D
We ended our meal with a simple trifle of Autumn Apple VLA and German Spekulatius. Both married well.
