For Christmas, my bf got me a copy of the Vincent and Mary Price cookbook titled "A treasury of Great Recipes".  It's wonderful because his celebrity allowed him to sample some of the greatest restaurants all around the world.  Each chapter is from a different country and includes menus and recipes from restaurants in that country.  It was written in the late 60's so it's really the height of that old-school Francophilic dining experience Smiley  Anyway, the recipe:


It's called Poulet en Civet au Vieux Bourgogne but it's basically a Chicken, Mushroom, and Bacon Ragu with garlic toast points and little pearl onions (ahhhhh, so retro!).

There aren't words for how delicious this was!  The crisp bacon and crunchy garlicky toast went perfectly with the wine-infused chicken and tender mushrooms.  We'll be trying a lot more recipes from this book, thanks Vinny!

MMmmmm, I LOVE French food!

I miss the foods that I had during my travels abroad, especially while in France. *sigh*

Here's the weird thing..  in between 1960 and now, chickens got a looot bigger.  a 5lb bird was the smallest I could find.  It served two very hungry people with a lot of leftovers, so maybe 4 people total.
