Julia Child’s Coq au vin

It has been very cold here in London for the past week.  I thought a nice hot stew would be just the thing to warm us up. I found a recipe for Coq au vin in both Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking, and in Bill Granger’s Bill’s Basics. I decided to try Julia Child’s recipe, and then perhaps next time use Bill’s recipe.

Julia Child’s recipe calls for a number of steps, however I omitted the bacon and cognac.

    • I wanted to try out the classic way so that when I try Bill’s recipe, I’ll know whether I’m compromising on taste for the sake of speed.
