FEATURED RECIPE: Poulet en cocotte (Roast Chicken in a Pot)

Most of the recipes I post here are those that we’ve collected over the years, and I’m putting online for easy access for myself and my family.  I hope they’ll be useful to you, too – please let us know if you’ve enjoyed them, or if you’ve made modifications to make them better!

If a recipe is in bold below, that means I’ve updated it within the last couple of years (2017-2020), which means I’ve gone through and revised it for clarity and included better pictures. I’ve learned a lot about writing recipes in the past year or two, and my standards (and tastes!) have changed a lot since I started posting recipes ten years ago.

FESTIVE DRINKS

Inspired by a trip to the 2019 Genesee Domestic Skills Symposium in November, I decided to do a series of festive recipes for drinks based on historic sources. You can find the recipes below, along with some of the historic sources I found.
Note: These recipes generally involve alcoholic drinks that have been heated; despite the common misconception, heating things with alcohol in them doesn’t ‘boil off’ the alcohol.  These will be only marginally less alcoholic than they would be is they weren’t heated.  Also, heated alcohol seems to go to your head faster, so y’know, pace yourself.
