Le poulet se fait festif avec Ottolenghi ! Yes, chicken can look festive (in an Ottolenghi recipe) !

Décidément, quand j'aime, je ne fais pas les choses à moitié ! Vous connaissez désormais ma toute nouvelle passion pour le chef d'origine israélienne Yotam Ottolenghi. Je vous ai déjà fait connaître sa brioche tressée chocolatée (le fameux Krantz Cake), son gâteau aux clémentines et aux amandes, alors voici enfin une recette salée (mais encore une fois avec des agrumes) : le poulet rôti aux clémentines et fenouil. Je dois dire que ce plat (ainsi que le banoffee destructuré de mon dernier billet) m'a sauvé la vie lorsque... [Lire la suite]

Nuggets trois étoiles de Anne-Sophie Pic; 3-star Chef Pic's home-made nuggets

Nuggets? Yes, but not just any nuggets, these ones are from a recipe by  Anne-Sophie Pic. Not only is she the only female Chef to have three michelin stars, but she is also a Mum and as so, she knows about our slight anxiety when we take our kids to a fast-food and wonder what the h*ll their chicken nuggets are made of...Sometimes, it is better not to know, but my daughters rave about them, so what am I supposed to do?  The answer is : make them a home-made version ! This way, everyone is happy : the anxious Mum who has a... [Lire la suite]

Pas de gâchis avec ce hachis, no "hangover" about leftovers

Parmentier de Volaille de NoëlChristmas Poultry "Parmentier" Now that I have done my homework (heehee) by sharing with you an entire festive menu last week, let's answer Ze question, that every cook fears : what to do with leftovers ? And don't think you won't have any, it is just impossible : when one makes a meal for a large party, one's eyes are bigger than one's guests' stomaches ! So, if you have some smoked salmon left, try these mini cakes. And what about roast turkey (or chicken or capon or duck or geese) ?... [Lire la suite]

Plat de fêtes : Le foie gras et les cèpes s'acoquinent avec le Poulet ! Foie gras and Porcini make friends with chicken !

Blancs de Poulets farcis au Foie Gras et aux CèpesFoie gras and Porcini Stuffed Chicken Breasts This recipe is a classier (and more expensive) version of one of my big classics. Or how to impress your guests without sweating in the kitchen. It is all in the way of incising the chicken breasts in order to create a large "pocket" for the stuffing and most importantly, in the way of "mummifying" them with puff pastry strips. After baking, the result is really gorgeous, so do not hesitate to show your... [Lire la suite]

Spécial "fô pô gâcher" : des rillettes avec les restes de poulet rôti, An economical snack : rillettes using chicken leftovers

Rillettes de Poulet à l'Estragon et aux EchalotesChicken Rillettes with Tarragon and Shallots I have already evoked my little "concern" about roast chicken leftovers : the carcass is easy to use (home-made broth), but what about the little pieces of flesh stuck on it and the wings (no wings amateurs in my little family) ? I thought it was a challenge to find fun ways to recycle them, until I realized that I now had quite a good list of "reasonable-housewife -wannabe" recipes in my own foodblog ! Three of...
