Coq au vin
Two couples wanted to have dinner here tonight and Pam was in the mood to do some cooking so she agreed. She decided on Coq au vin, which she had tried in a restaurant in France. Unfortunately I didn't have any cheap wine or brandy, so she put in it some of my best Napoleon brandy and half a bottle of Watershed Zinfandel. She served it with potatoes cooked in milk plus some carrots and broccoli. For desert she cooked apple cake with a custard filling. Jill and Brian came down from Perth to have a few days of R and R with us so the guests and ourselves had a veritable feast and everyone said it was fantastic, especially the sauce.
