Feeling a little sophisticated today, and I want to try my hand at some French cuisine. I did a little research into the origins of this recipe. It is over 400 years old, and did not gain popularity until the 1900′s. This recipe and the fact that it is French cuisine, known for complexities, is quite simple to prepare. (Much to my delight)
Until it gained popularity, coq au vin was considered a peasants’ dish. They would take the rooster that had stopped preforming his duties and, because he was so old, cook him in the wine that they had to tenderize the meat. Now that it is a popular dish, coq au vin has many variations depending on your region. This is one such variation.
When serving this, you can go sit down dinner with roasted potatoes, or mashed, and vegetables. Conversely you can go with a nice green salad with baby spinach, romaine hearts and radicchio, and a nice baguette with butter. And as always I recommend good company and good wine to go with it.

With winter still battering us in the northern areas of North America, a good stew is just about the best thing you can eat. It warms you from the inside. It’s lighter than a beef stew too.View Details
