I used up the whole bottle apart from one glass I drank myself.
I bought a Cote du Rhone as instructed. I bought a very nice free ranch chicken over 2kg. and I marinated the lot for 48hours. When it became time to cook the bird it had turned purple.
Here you can see everything shimmering in the Dutch oven I had to add almost half a bottle of red wine to make the wine come almost to the top of the chicken. I then started on the pearl onion. I did not drop them in a pot of boiling water I just peeled them. I did cook them in a pot with butter, oil, water and vinegar but stopped seeing the point after 20 min and added everything to the big pot.
After about an hour I skimmed the fat off and added the coca powder which I almost forgot. I served this with some baguettes and mashed potatoes on page 216. The potatoes was one of the best I have ever had. This recipe is so full of flavours and very good. It is very time consuming and to my surprise very soupy. Maybe if I do this one again I will take the lid off half way through or add more flour.
As you have maybe noticed I have made some updates on my blog. I took a seminar on World press and now have a little better understanding on how it works.
