The Sunday Chicken Club, vol. 1

Originally uploaded by ajkinik.

A great success, hosted by our friends Hermine, Gabe and Val.
The Sunday Chicken Club is a mutation of the failed Weekday Dinner Club which didn't even make it to its first dinner. I think there are a lot of clubs around right now, due, in part, to the coming winter... And the fact that certain people were away, and others are now away, and time has a way of passing better when the days are full of things.
Hermine made a lovely Poulet aux 40 gousses d'ail, with mashed potatoes, roasted carrots, and salad. The chicken was perfect: tender and juicy. Everything was delicious. Val's mousse au chocolat was excellent, even if she claimed "she (the mousse) needed to rest a bit longer in the cold." There was not a smidge left.
I think this is a fine christening to the Sunday Chicken Club. I'm sure the cats can't wait until we host.

we cooked 40 garlic chicken last night and substituted red for white wine-the lower half of the chicken was a bit purple but we have now decided only to cook with red wine-we have also done this for our bouillabaisse-will be eating the chicken remainder for lunch.
