Happy New Dinner!

 

I spent a small fortune yesterday on a beautiful organic* chicken. Today decapitated and de-feeted it and slow poached it. It should feed me for a few meals, but I'm sitting now thinking it might end up being eaten later tonight - just by me.

 

It's sitting resting now, and I'm going to be adding the neck and head to the poaching medium for stock. The extra fat was removed and will shortly be rendered for purposes yet unknown, The gizzard and kidney will be the chef's reward.

* "Organic" has no legal definition here, but I've tried birds from this supplier before and they sure taste better. BTW, I have one Chinese good friend who, despite being fluent in English and French alongside her three Chinese languages, always gets a little confused about one linguistic point. A few years ago I cooked for her and she asked me,

"Is that an orgasmic chicken?"

I told her that I had tried my best, but it was up to her to decide!
