October 2012 - POT AU FEU
This is the quintessence of French family cuisine, and must be the most celebrated dish in France! It honours the tables of the rich as much as it does those of the poor. Despite its lack of sophistication, it has not only survived the passage of time but is still one of the great favourites today, a triumph of simplicity!
From this dish, thousands were born, such as Poule au Pot, Potée au Choux, navarin, daubes, carbonades and without forgetting the beautiful chicken soup. You can feast on this dish for three days.
