Coq au vin jaune

Recipe for coq au vin jaune, I cut it in half because it was way too big, nice surprise when I lifted it, my butcher must have thought I had a regiment at home. Coq au vin jaune, here is a great recipe from my region of Franche Comté, normally it is made with morels, well I didn’t have any on hand, but I also like porcini mushrooms. Coq au vin jaune, there are two schools: the first used at the beginning of Savagnin rather than yellow wine. The second one, which is mine, I have been using yellow wine for my rooster from the start, the sauce from this poultry is a killer, the plates come in almost cleaner than at the start of the meal. Coq au vin jaune you can serve with, if you have the means, yellow wine or (and it goes very well) a Savagnin d’Arbois; this wine with a lot of character will tame this devilish rooster. Coq au vin jaune recipe for 6 people:


  • 1 yellow farm rooster
