The Chicken Story....,
This review is from: Roast Chicken and Other Stories (Ebury Paperback Cookery) (Paperback)
It's so refreshing to see a book arranged by an interesting set of ingredients rather first-second third, dessert etc. It reminds me a bit of Mrs Beeton - another indespensable staple in the kitchen! I am enjoying reading the recepies and alternatives offered and the encouragement to try different things!
The Roast Chicken is fantastic, I made it for friends the day after we bought the book and it was complemented very highly, we roasted the potatoes in the reduction of the wine, saffron and ginger and they were fantastically tasty and the carcass made a great soup too.
Enjoy it, read it as a book for ideas, use it to help you understand new and forgotten ingredients! Love the recepies and share them, especially, use it to cook for friends who enjoy their food
