Chicken in Red Wine with Onions, Mushrooms and Bacon
Louis la Vache will share with you aujord'hui la recette pour le cog-au-vin de nôtre dame de la poche, "Our Lady of the Ladle," Julia Child.
Occasionally you will find this recette classique de la cuisine française made with white wine (for example reisling from the Alsace region) but most commonly it is made with vin rouge. In the French countryside, coq-au-vin is often made with older roosters because they contain a lot of connective tissue, which creates a richer broth when cooked. In France it is usually accompanied only by parsley potatoes; buttered green peas could be included if you wish a green vegetable.
