French Classic Cooking with Franck: The Poultry Edition…

March 9th, 2016 · 5 Comments

I cannot believe how fast Our French Classic Cooking Course is going… it has been a lot of fun. I can say my kids have learnt a lot of new skills and that they are adding new recipes to their cooking repertoire each week…

Lesson 5: Duck and Chicken…

This week was clearly the poultry week, and after watching the video folk were a little quiet… nobody wanted to prepare duck. Talk about adventurous eating fail. So we went immediately to the chicken recipe and tried that instead. We believe each of our kids need to leave home with a few signature recipes up their sleeves and this is Hood #4’s. He had no problem putting it together and everybody loved it.

Recipe: Poulet Basquaise…

This was one of Julia Child’s favourite recipes, we had to find out why… Honestly anything that begins with yummy fresh vegetables has a got to end up fantastic… And it was so easy!!!

There was a heap of chopping… because everybody loves chopping…

Tomatoes were added to create the sauce…

Then leave it bubbling away while you read a couple of chapters…

And dinner was literally done. Easy, impressive and delicious, not a bad signature dish for a twelve year old.
