Coq au Vin

Coq au Vin is usually made with an older chicken, one that is hardier and more flavoursome. If you can get one you will experience the real cleverness of this dish but if not, choose a free range or organic chicken to show this recipe off at its best. After all, you’re putting a whole bottle of good Burgundy into it, so you may as well make the most of it.


Chicken Noodle Stir-fry

Mussels in Garlic and White Wine

You can buy a net of mussels in most supermarkets, ready cleaned. It’s genuine fast food! Discard any mussels that are open before you cook them, and any that are still closed after you finish cooking them.

MAIN COURSES Herbed Pork Escalopes

Herbed Pork Escalopes

Boneless pork chops are much easier to cook when you turn them into escalopes – the result is also juicier than cooking the whole pork chop and they are quicker to cook. To make a pork escalope place boneless pork chops between two sheets of cling film, bash the hell out of them with a wine bottle or rolling pin, slice thinly and season. We’ve coated them in herb breadcrumbs to add more flavour. (Use Irish pork if you can, it’s some of the best in the world.)


Easy Puttanesca Chicken
