Ingredients for coq au vin. This is half a cockerel, weighing 1.5 kg and costing €6.49 (€4.35/kg)
Blanch the little onions to make them easier to peel. These are yellow onions and the skins stain the water quite strongly (it makes a good yellow dye).This recipe is for turkey legs, but is almost identical to the recipe in Meat that I used, except that it appears to have forgotten the mushrooms (which you sweat and add at the end). Our friend Ken does it slightly differently, marinating the meat overnight and no doubt equally delicious.
The onions being browned in butter and olive oil.
